Regents' Policy Manual - Section 4.4: Student Records

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996
Amended: 06-12-2012


This policy applies to all records containing personally identifiable information about a student. It does not apply to records containing information about prospective students, applicants, or alumni.


Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), students have the right to inspect and review most records maintained about them by the University, to restrict access to information about them by outsiders in most cases, and to amend student records which are incorrect or violate students' rights. FERPA also requires the University to inform students of their rights under FERPA and the policy.

It is the policy of the University to comply fully and fairly with the provisions of the Act and applicable federal regulations.
