We are very pleased to inform you that the search for the university registrar has concluded and Steven Smith will be joining the UMBC community Monday, November 8. As university registrar, Steve will provide leadership for the delivery of academic services including the oversight of academic records, course registration, class scheduling, articulation agreements, degree audit and undergraduate progression toward degree completion. Steve will work in partnership with faculty and other administrative units to develop and implement academic policies and procedures that support student matriculation and academic progress.
