The University Registrar is an ex-oficio member of various Councils and Committees and, in that capacity, counsels administration, faculty and staff on academic procedural matters.

The Registrar ensures the integrity, accuracy, and security of all academic records of current and former students; facilitates effective student registration and enrollment; builds secure student data files and sets rules and procedures for their responsible use; maintains up-to-date course schedules, catalogs, final examination schedules; manages efficient use of classrooms; and supervises and maintains the Banner Student module and degree audit system.

The University Registrar is responsible for the supervision and management of all administrative and operational processes within the Office of the Registrar, including student academic records custodian, annual catalog publication, curriculum maintenance, course and academic space scheduling, maintenance of transfer credit equivalency tables, term registration set-up, grade processing, academic probation notification, State of NM and National Clearinghouse reporting, degree audit system maintenance, issuance of official transcripts and enrollment verifications, residency determinations, and NCAA certification.
