The add/drop deadline for Winter 2024 courses has passed, unless your course starts later in the semester. Please keep track of your course's timeline through the Course Index, and if you need to add a course that has already started, you will need to follow our Late Add procedures. If you wish to withdraw from a course, you can do that until Friday, March 22nd, 2024, by 5pm (for full term and earlier part-of-term courses, which you can check via the Course Index), and you will receive a W grade. At this point in the semester, there are no tuition refunds granted for withdrawals for full term courses.

What We Do

The Registrar’s Office  is broken up into different units: Student Assistance Centers, Records, Auditing, Transcript Specialists, and Registration.

Student Assistance Centers are walk-up window locations to assist with any questions you may have in person. The student assistance centers also handle payment transactions (any payments made at our windows must be made with a check or a reverse ATM card) and create student IDs. Our locations are in Allendale at STU 150 and in Grand Rapids at DeVos 115C.

The Records unit is in charge of creating and maintaining all data necessary to produce a student transcript. The Records unit staff act as School Certifying Officials in support of our student Veterans receiving VA educational benefits. This unit processes grade changes, applications for reentry/readmission, transcript requests, and enrollment verifications. Veterans questions can be sent to [email protected]

The Auditing unit  works closely with advising centers and faculty advisors to ensure that students have completed all necessary requirements to graduate. This unit handles degree audits (including myPath exceptions), processes catalog year changes, awarding of degrees, and ordering diplomas. Auditing questions can be sent to [email protected]

The Transcripts Specialists unit works with academic departments to distribute transfer credit evaluations. In addition to loading and evaluating transfer credits, the unit also processes AP, IB, and CLEP scores for students. Transfer credit questions and evaluations can be directed to [email protected]

The Registration unit works closely with academic units to prepare and publish the annual course schedule and the annual course catalog. This unit also processes late add and withdrawal forms, assists students with registration questions, and handles room reservations. Scheduling questions can go to [email protected]; room reservation requests and questions can go to [email protected]

All our staff is knowledgeable and able to assist over the phone (616-331-3327) or by email ([email protected]) as well.

Student Resources


Registration is how students sign up for courses. At Grand Valley, students can register for the full academic year.

Academic Records

The Registrar's Office assists students and alumni with transcripts, enrollment verifications, reverse transfer information, and any additional records request.


When you are nearing the completion of your program - usually the semester before you plan to finish your degree requirements - you must file an application for graduation.
