Registration and Records

The Office of Registration and Records is responsible for providing efficient, timely, and personable service to students while maintaining accurate student academic records. The Registrar processes grades and transcripts, prepares credit evaluations and notifies students on transfer credit issues, and oversees the registration process and enrollment verifications. The Registrar coordinates graduation, certifies degree completions, posts degrees, processes diplomas, and is the FERPA Compliance Officer for The College.

Registration and Records

Edited 10/8/2022

Students are required to register for courses before each academic term. Prior to each registration period, course listings, specific registration dates, and registration instructions are posted online on the Office of Registration and Records webpage. Students may not register for a course they are currently enrolled in for the following semester until official grades are posted.

Prior to registration, students must accept any Registration Holds on their account. Accepting registration holds will enable the student to register on the day and time listed in the Academic Calendar.

Registration is available through SONISWeb. Registration time is based on the student’s classification (sophomore, freshman, non-degree, etc.) and program. After a student has registered online, a student should print a copy of their class schedule to verify that the online registration process was completed.

To view class schedule information, registration dates and instructions, forms for changing name or address, and requesting official transcripts, please refer to the Office of Records and Registration webpage at

Please note that The College reserves the right to cancel courses and course sections, even after registration has taken place, if there is low enrollment, if a qualified faculty person or clinical site is unavailable, or if other extenuating circumstances occur. Every effort will be made to place students in other sections of the same course, if possible. Students will be notified of any changes via their TCC email.

Requesting Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are released from The Christ College when authorization is received and the student’s financial obligations to The College have been met. Official transcripts may be requested securely via the National Student Clearinghouse. Using this process also allows students to track the processing of the order and receive email and text alerts regarding the request. To access the transcript request page, students should visit the website at: and select ‘Quicklinks’ -> ‘Onestop’ -> ‘Request Transcript of Grades.’

Transcripts may be mailed or emailed but cannot be faxed. Currently enrolled students may access and print their unofficial academic record by logging into SONIS.

Edited 8/29/2022

Audit students are those who desire to attend course(s) without receiving academic credit. Below are the criteria for auditing a class:

  • Courses audited will not be counted in computing the maximum number of hours for which a student is allowed to register.
  • Students are expected to follow the same attendance regulations for audited classes as for credit classes.
  • Students may take the examinations but are not required to do so.
  • Audited classes are recorded with an “AU”.
  • All students must make the decision to audit at the time of registration. Students should refer to the add/drop procedure for any change in course designation.
  • The Registrar will not honor a change request for credit and/or audit after the deadline date for refund of fees has passed.
