The Registrar's office understands that you need to feel comfortable that the data you are submitting in utilizing the services we offer is secure. To support your trust in this matter we use SSL. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer encryption. SSL is a protocol that utilizes public/private key encryption to negotiate a connection between the web server and your browser. The URL for all services using SSL begins https. This protocol has been approved by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as a standard. Not all of our pages need to use this level of security, but you can rest assured that any service that requires you to enter personal information does.

It is important to note that no security scheme is infallible and there is always a trade off with convenience. To be effective security must be a partnership. Never share your Personal Access Code or passwords with anyone.
