The Assistant Registrar, Transfer Articulation, Cross Registration, Data and Reporting, is a key member of the overall Academic Services team, and contributes to that team in a number of unique ways. The Assistant Registrar will have direct ownership of academic team functions:
Act as the Process and Product Owner for the articulation of transfer credit onto BC academic records. This will involve partnering with agencies across campus (particularly Transfer Admissions, Office of International Programs, and school Deans) to establish and encode relationships between external courses and Boston College courses, equivalency courses, and program requirements. As this is a new function being deployed with Eagle Apps, initial work will be to elicit and clarify requirements, participate in functional and user acceptance testing, and advocate for ongoing fixes and improvements once the uAchieve system is deployed.

The Assistant Registrar takes the lead with regard to the University's academic data. Given the importance of recordkeeping to any academic institution, accurate and up-to-date information is essential to both ongoing operations and for decision support. As part of his/her reporting responsibilities, the Assistant Registrar will take ownership of the National Student Clearinghouse Enrollment and Degree Verify reporting, as well as data corrections associated with that activity. More generally, s/he will have ownership for all data corrections for the academic team, processing changes and ensuring accuracy of information that cannot be maintained by other members of the team as part of their daily responsibilities. The Assistant Registrar will develop a deep understanding of all aspects of the University's academic data, and will work with other members of the Student Services Information systems Team to produce ad hoc reporting and analysis related to that data for the Registrar area using the Enterprise Data Warehouse and Operational Data Cognos environments.

S/he will also participate in the core work of updating and maintaining academic records, having direct responsibility for Cross-Registration but being available to assist other academic recorders as work demands require. The Assistant Registrar will manage the admission, registration, and the grading process for Boston College students who are cross-registered in Consortium and Boston Theological Institute (BTI) courses and for external students taking Boston College courses. S/he will act as a liaison between Boston College and other Consortium schools to ensure that students are accurately registered in courses, attend meetings as the Boston College representative to the Boston Theological Institute and the Consortium, and provide statistics and reporting as required.
