Welcome to the CAS Registrar’s Office

The mission of the Registrar’s office is to support students, faculty, and the institution by maintaining and safeguarding student records, providing resources and information to the Lewis & Clark community, and upholding academic policy. In this role, the Registrar’s Office seeks to create collaborative relationships with students, faculty, and staff while implementing academic policies in a fair, transparent, and consistent manner. The Registrar’s Office is committed to preserving the accuracy and privacy of student academic records and to protecting the integrity of the institution by complying with both institutional policies
and external higher education guidelines.

ASSESSING YOUR ACADEMIC PROGRESS 

You may track your academic progress by using a Program Evaluation.

The Program Evaluation displays the requirements for your specific degree, and documents the courses you have used to satisfy each of those requirements.  It also shows any substitute courses that have been approved for use in place of the regularly required course.

If you think that a course should be used to satisfy a requirement, but it is not reflected on your program evaluation, you should contact the Registrar’s office to inquire.  Some courses – such as Topics classes like ENG-333, have to be forced to satisfy the requirement manually, as the topic has to be verified.  We normally do that upon request of the student.

Directions for viewing or printing your program evaluation can be found at:
