Important Message from the Registrar's Office

The Registrar's Office is working remotely and remains committed to serving our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. While our main office phone line is being monitored, the best way to reach us is via email at We are slowly converting all of our forms so they can be completed using a PDF reader, and completed forms should be emailed to us. If a faculty signature is required, send the form to the faculty member who will then forward it to us. Current students do not need to physically sign forms if they are sent from their Davidson email account.

The Registrar's Office maintains the permanent academic records of all students. The office acts for the faculty in coordinating activities including course registration, maintenance and protection of academic records, and certification of students for continued enrollment and graduation.

We maintain, interpret, and monitor academic policy and communicate procedures to faculty, students, and the college's various publics. We are dedicated to support for academic advising, course planning and assisting students planning off-campus study.

In carrying out its functions, we maintain a comprehensive database of student academic and demographic information. We also certify student enrollment and academic eligibility to various agencies including the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Student Clearinghouse, and provide alumni verification of degrees awarded.

WebTree Course Planning

WebTree is the software used by Davidson students to enter course preferences. It is a student-designed initial course registration process that allows for each student to obtain one course before any student gets a second course.
