Registrar

Welcome to the Registrar’s Office
The Registrar’s Office provides an important link between academic policies of Georgia Piedmont Tech and our academic departments and students. Our Office is responsible for issuing transcripts and enrollment verifications; evaluating transcripts; conducting registration; awarding and posting degrees; and reviewing petitions for in-state residency. It is also the responsibility of the Registrar’s Office to maintain accurate and secure records of all students.

FERPA
For the protection of student’s rights to privacy, the Registrar’s Office ensures the College’s compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). For more information about students’ privacy rights, please click here.

HEALTH AND SAFETY EXEMPTION
There are limited exceptions to FERPA regulations under which Georgia Piedmont Technical College is permitted to disclose educational records or personally identifiable, non-directory information from education records in connection with a health or safety emergency without student consent.

The situation must present imminent danger to a student, other students or members of the school community in order to qualify as an exception. This action is not taken lightly and only under circumstances that present imminent danger.

Our Mission
The Registrar’s Office is committed to serving students, faculty, staff and prospective students by providing quality service that promotes enrollment, retention and completion, while maintaining accurate academic records for the College.

Enrollment Status
A degree, diploma, or certificate student who is registered for at least 12.0 semester credit hours is considered to be a full-time student. Enrolling for fewer hours for a particular semester may affect eligibility for financial aid or veterans’ benefits and enrollment certification. CEU credit hours are not included in the student load calculation.

12.0 or more credit hours = full-time enrollment status
11.0 to 6.0 credit hours = half-time enrollment status
Less than 6.0 credit hours = less than half-time enrollment status
