Sending a Confidential Document

Sending Confidential Documents to the Registrar's Office

The Registrar’s Office is committed to protecting the security of student data and information. To ensure we are meeting this goal, we have developed policies around how information can be transmitted to and from our office.

The Registrar’s Office does not accept sensitive and personally identifiable information via email.

Liquid Files facilitates easy file sharing between users and promotes secure data sharing habits. The application uses https encryption for confidential data. For your protection, we do not accept documents containing this information via email. If you have questions or need help, please contact our office at (828) 262-2050, otherwise, scroll down to view instructions on using Liquid Files.
