The mission of the Cal State LA Registrar’s Office is to provide the most efficient academic services to students, faculty and alumni without compromising institutional or legal standards. Security and timeliness to accurate information guides the department’s actions.
The Registrar’s Office consists of a staff of 35 people, 10 who focus on records management. Overall responsibilities include student transcript record production and handling changes such as grades and majors.
Chelsey Seely, Assistant Registrar for Academic Records, states “When I started here in August 2015, the microfilm was hitting the 30 year old mark and we knew that digitally converting the records would be important for not only convenience, but also long-term retention.”
Seely continues, “Our campus utilizes OnBase for regular scanning and indexing of day-to-day forms. We went to that team for a bid, but the price came back too high. We discovered Digital ReeL at the PACRAO Conference; it met our requirements and happened to be about one tenth of the price.”
