The Office of the Registrar houses academic records for current and former Briar Cliff University students. The Office of the Registrar can assist with the following needs:
  • Process transcript requests (The student's signature is required with each request.)
  • Verify degrees conferred to former students
  • Verify dates of attendance
  • Verify enrollment for insurance requirements
  • Validate your ID at the beginning of each term
  • Replacement ID's
  • Changing registration after the Add/Drop period (Add/Drop Policy)
  • Student loan deferment forms for current students
  • Student directory release
  • Authorize release of grade, account, and academic information to your parents/guardians
  • Copy of your class schedule
  • Change of address
  • Course schedules in preparation for advising each term

The information above (except as noted for transcript requests) is student directory information and may be released without the student's consent. Students may file a request to prevent the release of their student directory information. This written request must be filed by the third week of school, either at Validation Day (at the Registrar’s table) or by visiting the Office of the Registrar. Directory information includes information that can be publicly released without needing to seek the student’s consent.

Information considered to be directory information at Briar Cliff University: name, address, telephone listing, electronic mail address, photograph, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, grade level, enrollment status (e.g., undergraduate or graduate student, full-time or part-time), participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, degrees, honors and awards received. Those students who have requested not to release their student directory information must authorize any of the above verifications in writing.

Briar Cliff University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verifications. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted at:
