Official Student Record
The Registrar of the College maintains the Official Student Record. It includes: information provided when an Application for Admission is submitted or when registration for and change to programs and courses are submitted; the student identification number; academic record; graduation status; and immigration status (collection is specifically authorized by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act) correspondence. It is used to determine a student’s eligibility for admission and registration; to track progress at the College; to contact the student when necessary; to confirm a student’s status and identity; and to develop statistical reports. Some personal information in the Official Student Record is available to and used by other units of the College in order to meet the College’s Mandate.
