About the Office


The Brown University Office of the Registrar dates back to 1828 when the office of the "Register" was created and assumed by Lemuel H. Elliot, who had previously held the title of "Steward." The current registrar is Robert F. Fitzgerald, who was appointed to the position in 2010.

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for course registration, course and classroom scheduling, posting of grades, transcripts and student certifications, tuition charges, final clearance of degree requirements at graduation, publication of the University Catalogue and Course Announcement, and preparation and release of diplomas for Commencement.

The Registrar's Office is located on the third floor of J. Walter Wilson Hall, 69 Brown Street (on the corner of Brown and Waterman streets across from the Faunce House Arch).
