Office of the Registrar
In response to the exceptional learning circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the withdrawal deadline has been extended to April 30 and a temporary alternate grade designation policy has been adopted for this semester.
The Registrar supports the instructional and student progress endeavors of the university
by providing quality services to students, faculty, administration, and the public.
The employees in the Registrar's Office will show a strict adherence to University policies while at the same time confronting each situation and problem with a helpful, Christian attitude.
Our office is located in Cone Bottoms, room 210. Our normal hours of operation are 8:00 AM to Noon and 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
Our mailing address is: OBU, Registrar's Office, Box 3757, Arkadelphia, AR 71998.
