Welcome to the Registrar's Office

The Registrar’s Office supports teaching and learning at Acadia by maintaining the integrity of academic policies and student records. We help with many academic and non-academic questions – registration, degree audits, prerequisites, verification of enrolment, transfer credits, important dates, examinations, academic regulations, and more.



The Registrar’s Office is accepting phone, email and online (HUB requests) for support and information. Staff will be onsite Tuesdays and Thursdays only, and requests for emergency service and official documents are by appointment only. The primary and preferred means for responses and issuing of documents will be electronically. Please email registrar@acadiau.ca or submit a HUB request.

Spring and Summer Session Updated Information
On March 20, 2020, Acadia University made the difficult decision to cancel its on campus spring session courses given the evolving COVID-19 situation. At this time we are considering remote delivery options for these spring session courses. When the details have been finalized, students will be contacted.

At this time on-campus summer session courses are still scheduled. More information can be found here.

Online courses through Open Acadia are also available. For information about these continuous intake, start anytime online course offerings, please visit Open Acadia Online Learning.
