Review of Student Records

Our policy provides for a student to review the student’s educational record. Copies are not normally made for a student except when the student does not live within commuting distance, or requires copies of individual items for circumstances such as an application or legal matter.

A student has access to all education records, except for those listed below under Limitation on Right of Access, and has the right to personally view his or her education record within 45 days of the initial request.

Limitation on Right of Access

The institution will not permit a student to inspect the following records:

  • The financial statement of the student’s parents.
  • Letters and statements of recommendations for which the student has waived his or her right of access, or which were maintained before January 1, 1975.
  • Records connected with an application to attend the institution or a component unit of the institution if that application was denied.
  • Records that are excluded from the FERPA definition of education records.

Provision of Copies

The institution reserves the right to deny copies of records, including transcripts, not required to be made available by FERPA in any of the following situations:

  • The student lives within commuting distance of the institution.
  • The student has an unpaid financial obligation to the institution.
  • There is an unresolved disciplinary action against the student.
  • The education record requested is an exam or set of standardized test questions.
