Office of Associate Registrar & alumni affairs

Establishment History

The Office of Associate Registrar & alumni affairs started functioning since the establishment of the college in 1996, aiming at handling student admission, issuing academic calendars and keeping academic records of enrolled students. The Office underwent several restructuring and got its current shape through evolutionary change.

Providing adequate and efficient services to the academic community of the college is the primary mission of the Registrar. To this end, three Associate Registrars run the Office’s functions at school of postgraduate studies, School of Graduate Studies, Technical vocational and educational training programs and College of Open and Distance Learning. The major operational areas of the Office include Admission and Enrollment Services, Academic Document Processing, and Student Services. Each of these operations is headed by an Assistant Registrar answerable to the respective Associate Registrar.

Current and past achievements

The Office has been assisting the Top Management in its effort to make informed decisions to improve student services by providing evidence-based information. It periodically issues up-to-date data on student progression. This includes student enrollment, graduation, withdrawal and dropout. In this regard, it has produced overall student attrition and retention statistics of the last 10 years, which can be used as input for intervention in the teaching-learning and administrative processes. The Office also compiles data on instructor absenteeism and conduct of makeup classes for any missed hours. In addition to organizing and producing different statistical information, the Office has automated its system and has enabled students to access diverse information and their grades on their mobile sets. In the last two years, it has also created an SMS platform by which the entire College community can be able to receive and send messages of academic interest.
