• Registrar 

    Always striving for excellence in our academic programming, the Academic Office and Registrar plans and manages the academic vision of the College. This office develops and regulates academic policies, determines transfer equivalencies, ensures curriculum integrity, and provides opportunities for faculty to develop their teaching skills. 

    The Academic Office is also the liaison for all collaborative programs. For students interested in a collaborative major, information about the application process, programs and requirements are available. The ADR also serves as academic
    advisors for all collaborative students.

    To Transfer Courses
    Request a transcript from the college at which the courses were completed. Kuyper College transfers classes that are similar in content to classes in the college’s curriculum that received a grade of C or higher. Sixty-five credits may be transferred from a community college, and 75 from a four-year institution. Current Kuyper students should seek the input of the Registrar prior to taking classes at another college to be transferred toward their degrees.
    To Drop or Add a Class
    See your Academic Advisor for approval before dropping or adding classes. During the first week of classes, students may drop or add classes without penalty once a Change of Class form is returned to the Academic Office. After the first week, students may drop or add classes once approval is granted and a drop/add form is submitted.
    To Apply to Graduate
    Graduation applications may be retrieved from the Academic Office. Students should submit an application to graduate during the fall or winter semesters; graduation ceremonies take place in April of each year.

    To have your transcript evaluated for graduation: Once a graduation application is submitted, the registrar will review your degree audit and transcript. If all requirements are met, the audit will be certified for graduation, clearing the student to walk in the graduation ceremonies
