SVSU Logo Office of the Registrar

Welcome to the SVSU Registrar’s Office website!  

The goals of our office include providing outstanding service and educational resources, and preserving the academic records of our students.  To accomplish these goals, we perform various roles like record keeper, rule enforcer/protector, and most importantly, service provider.

Our primary efforts are focused on making the university’s educational resources available to our students.  In addition to course registration schedule and other relevant dates/calendars, you will find resources on requesting transcripts, commencement, and important policies and procedures.   We also have a web site section on the Michigan Reverse Transfer policy.  If you have transferred into SVSU from one of the listed community colleges without having earned your Associate degree, it may well be in your interest to pursue this excellent opportunity!

The Registrar’s Office performs its duties within established protocols and with the utmost integrity.  This is your assurance that you will receive timely, accurate and professional assistance from our staff.

We look forward to working with you as you progress through your university academic program leading to graduation!
