The Registrar’s Office is the steward of student academic records. We coordinate services in the areas of course information, course selection, grading, concentration declaration, degree progress, certification of enrollment and degrees awarded, administration of final doctoral examinations, and protection and release of academic records. In addition, we provide timely assistance and accurate information to university administrators, faculty and staff regarding the approval process and procedures for the development of new courses and programs, as well as for the implementation of changes to existing courses and programs.
Many student and faculty academic services are available online via the WebAdvisor application from your myFielding landing page. We strive to provide exceptional and efficient service and to continuously adapt business processes to anticipate and reflect curriculum and technology changes, while delivering high levels of student, alumni, administrator and faculty satisfaction.

Fielding Graduate University’s yearly academic schedule is comprised of three approximately 15-week long terms: Spring, Summer and Fall. There is a break between each term of two-three weeks. Some programs run shorter courses of about 12 weeks, or accelerated modules of 7 weeks in length.
Approximately two months in advance of each term, there is a month-long online registration period where students can utilize WebAdvisor to register for classes.
Term dates and WebAdvisor registration date are published in the University Master calendar.
For courses not utilizing WebAdvisor registration (e.g., dissertation research, independent study contracts, among others) the paperwork and registration forms for these courses can be received at any time and do not need to be received during the online registration period. The forms for those courses are available from the program-specific registration pages linked on your left.
How to Order Transcripts
An official transcript is the University’s certified statement of the student’s academic record and will cover all areas/levels (certificate, master’s, doctoral, post-graduate) of coursework taken at Fielding. Transcript orders are processed as received; if you need your transcript to show certain grades or a degree conferral, check your student record in WebAdvisor to make sure the content you need appears on your record before placing your order.
