Dates of existence


Morley Finley was appointed the first registrar at Ryerson at the School's founding in 1948. He also functioned as the executive assistant to Principal Howard Kerr. Finley resigned from the position in 1955, replaced by D. G. W. McRae (1956-1958). The Registrariat had three sections - Academic Advising/Evaluations; Records and Registration Services; and Timetabling. In 1990 they became responsible for the Office of Admissions/Liaison, which formerly had been organized under the Office of Community Relations. In 1993, the Registrar's office amalgamated its four units into two - Academic Advising/Evaluations with Admissions/Liaison; Timetabling with Records and Registration Services. In 2015 the Office of Student Awards and Scholarship moved under the umbrella of the Registrar's office, formerly residing in the Office of Convocation and Awards.
