The Registrar's Office welcomes you to Harding University. This office is responsible for maintaining your student record. Your student record includes personal data, transfer credits, registration and course information, grades, and the transcript data. Transcript requests, enrollment information, degree and graduation verification are processed in this office. Harding University follows the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (also known as the Buckley Amendment) and only a person authorized by the act may access or receive information regarding a student’s record. Students are required to provide a written request for a transcript or other information maintained in the student record.
Registration is completed online through Pipeline. We encourage you to meet with your assigned advisor prior to registering for any class, and to follow your degree plan when scheduling classes.
To make building a class schedule easier, we provide a schedule planner tool available on Pipeline, along with a tutorial for this registration tool.
