Students who desire their grades be released to parents and guardians should complete the "Education Records Release Form" located in the Office of the Registrar. Students are guaranteed certain rights pertaining to the review and release of their education records under the provisions of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.
Official records are not open to the public and will not be released without the consent of the student. However, certain directory-type information may be released to the public on all students unless individual students state in writing to the Office of the Registrar that they do not wish for the information to be released. Such directory-type information may include name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major, participation in activities, dates of attendance, and degrees and awards received.
Academic information is confidential. However, in order for the University to serve its students, academic information is shared with University administrative offices and academic advisors for the purpose of providing these services to the student.
In the case of indebtedness to the University, satisfactory arrangements must be made with the Office of the Bursar for the release of grades and transcripts.
