Records, Rights and Privacy

The university complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and as it appears in final form in June 1976, with subsequent amendments. This law protects the rights of students to review their own records and to challenge any of the content of the record. Students may request access to their records from the following offices:

  1. Permanent grade records (transcripts) for all students are kept in the Marion Campus Registrar's Office.
  2. Records are maintained by the Registrar's Office, the Office of Student & Faculty Support Services, the Accounting Offices, and the Offices of Financial Aid.

The law also protects students from the unlawful disclosure of information about their academic performance, personal campus discipline, or financial status.

The law allows the disclosure of five classes of “directory information” as follows:

  1. Name, address, telephone number, dates of attendance, and class.
  2. Previous institution(s) attended, major field of study, awards, honors, degree(s) conferred, including dates.
  3. Past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities, physical factors (height and weight) of athletes, date and place of birth.
  4. Schedule of classes.
  5. Photograph.

A student may request in writing that one or all of the five categories of directory information be restricted from publication. In no case will grade, discipline, or financial information be disclosed except in keeping with the law.

Requests are filed with either the Registrar's Office or the Office of Student & Faculty Support Services.
