Community Aquatic &
Recreation Complex (CARC)
The Office of Records & Registration at Garrett College oversees two major functions of the College:
1) the management of the students’ educational records, and
2) the adherence to the policies and procedures for advising, registration, and degree completion.

Educational Records and the Student Portal

This Office maintains your official educational record. In addition to the hard copy information maintained by the Office, you also have electronic access to information via the Student Portal (see Student Portal brochure).

Your College Email Account

Within a few days after registering for classes, you will receive a letter in the mail containing your User Name and Password. This User Name and Password is universal for all technology located on campus including your college email account. Be sure to read the letter entirely, as it contains instructions on how to activate your account. It is important that you check your student email account regularly, at a minimum of once a day. Your instructors and the staff of the College will NOT communicate with you via any other email address.

Official Transcripts

When applying for scholarships or transferring to another College, you may be asked for an “Official Transcript”, this is the official record of the grades for the classes you have taken at the College. Your official academic transcript can be obtained only from the Office of Records & Registration. To send an official transcript, you simply submit a signed Transcript Request form to the Office. Keep in mind, official transcripts go through standard mail, so allow yourself plenty of time for delivery.

College Policies and Procedures

The actual process of registering for classes is something you will do in conjunction with your Advisor. Your New Student Advisor will teach you how the process works so you are prepared for next semester. It’s important for you to know that there are many rules and procedures that guide the registration process, including many important deadlines. While the Office of Records & Registration does not actually ‘register’ you for classes (your Advisor does), this office is responsible for overseeing the process and making sure that policies are recognized and adhered to.

Important Deadlines and Financial Impact on You

One important guideline for you to know today before registering for classes is that there are deadlines associated with your registration and these deadlines have academic and financial impacts upon you. For instance, should you decide you want to change your schedule, you must provide written notice to your Advisor by the published “Last Day to” date and there may be a financial cost for doing so. Refer to your class schedule when considering making changes to your schedule.

Make sure you understand the financial impact of changing your schedule! If you are receiving financial funding such as the Federal Pell Grant or the County Scholarship Program, dropping or withdrawing from a class may impact your financial aid award and you may be required to return monies to the agencies who awarded the funds to you. Talk with a Financial Aid counselor for more information on how schedule changes could personally cost you money!

Health services are provided by the Garrett County Health Department. A representative from the health department is on campus a minimum of one time per week.

Additional health services are available through referal by the health department, the counselor on campus, or the student life office.
