Safeguarding your Academic Records
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) ensures that your student
records are handled confidentially and securely. Read online about your records and
rights as they pertain to FERPA (p. 27). If you have questions regarding what FERPA means to you and your records,
please email the Admissions & Records Office.
Additionally, Students may secure their records by authorizing a specific person to
handle transcript requests and/or enrollment Verifications. To the student, by submitting
a Release of Information Form to the Admissions & Records Office, you may select a representative to retrieve/verify
your academic record.
