The Registrar’s Basic Guide is the first stepping stone in fostering personal and professional growth to create a successful office that can support the needs of the institution and its students. In its 10 chapters, the Registrar's Basic Guide touches on all of the issues facing registrars; from FERPA, to publishing an academic calendar, advising students, managing staff, and staying current on emerging issues. This Guide provides practical and useful information for professionals at any experience level from beginner to seasoned registrar. It provides a comprehensive overview of a registrar's responsibilities for new professionals, and affords a seasoned professional the chance to reexamine the principles of good practice, management, and conduct. While this guide provides an efficient overview, it can also be used as a companion piece to AACRAO’s Professional Development Guidelines for Registrars: A Self-Assessment for deeper understanding.
