- Registrar (academic)
In education outside the United Kingdom, a registrar or
registraryis an official in an academic institution (a college, university, or secondary school) who handles student records. Typically, a registrar processes registration requests, schedules classes and maintains class lists, enforces the rules for entering or leaving classes, and keeps a permanent record of grades and marks.
In most Universities in the
United Kingdom, the Registrar is the head of the University's administration. The role is usually combined with that of Secretary of the University's governing bodies and in these cases, the full title will often be "Registrar and Secretary" (or "Secretary and Registrar") to reflect these dual roles. The University of Cambridge, Englanduses the archaic spelling of " Registrary" for this office.
Various grades of professional academic-related staff perform senior administrative and managerial roles in such universities on behalf of the Registrar or Head of Department and head subsections of the administration. Titles afforded to such staff include Academic Registrar, Assistant Registrar, Senior Assistant Registrar and Principal Assistant Registrar. Salaries for such positions in 2007 average £70k, £40k, £44k and £47k respectively (some instututions refer to Senior Assistant Registrars as Principal Assistant Registrars, so £48k is the salary for either position).
