The Work of the Registrar: A Summary of Principles and Practices in American Universities and Colleges
Preinkert, Alma H.
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO)
Take a walk down Memory Lane... In 1940 when AACRAO's new release "The Work of the Registrar" was written: Yale tuition was fifty dollars per quarter; colleges had curfews for women and dress codes; the average salary was $1,299 annually; first class stamps were three cents; and colleges sent progress reports home to parents. Read about what has changed since then and what has not in "The Work of the Registrar: A Summary of Principles and Practices in American Universities and Colleges." Written by Alma H. Preinkert, registrar at the University of Maryland from 1935 to 1954, it became an invaluable reference guide for all registrars during the 1940s. Current members of the profession should find this to be an interesting historical read. While the methods used to admit, register and maintain records have changed dramatically with computers and web based systems, the basic mission of the registrar's office has not. This book is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction; (2) The Functions Of The Registrar; (3) The Training of the Registrar; (4) The Registrar's Office; (5) Admissions; (6) Registration; (7) Records; (8) Grading and Grade Reports; (9) Graduation; (10) Transcript; (11) Committee Work; (12) Editorial Work and Information Service; (13) Statistical Studies and Reports ; (14) Rules and Regulations; (15) Personnel Work; (16) Curriculums; (17) Examinations; and (18) Tests and Measurements.
