Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The records maintained by the Office of the Dean of Students, including disciplinary records, are part of a student's academic record and are therefore governed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  To learn more about FERPA, visit the Office of the Registrar.

Please note that the University may disclose information from a student's disciplinary record to officials of another school in which a student seeks enrollment without the student's written consent. However, every attempt will be made to first obtain the student's consent.

Phone and Virtual Appointments

To ensure the safety and privacy of your academic record, you will be required to verify your identity with a FERPA PIN if you wish to discuss detailed academic or disciplinary record information over the phone. 

Authorizing a Third Party

To authorize the release of protected educational records to a third party, complete the "FERPA Release Consent" form to identify that party and create a PIN. Third parties will be required to provide the student's ID number along with the student-created PIN. It's the student's responsibility to give that required information to the designated third party. We cannot release information to a third party that is not correctly identified and verified. Students may update the PIN and list of third parties at any time.

Create a FERPA PIN

To create a FERPA PIN, visit Campus Information Services. On your Student Homepage, find the "FERPA Release Consent" link in your student profile tile. Thoroughly read and complete the form.

For more detailed information, please read our FERPA PIN Instruction Sheet.

If you are not able to log in to Campus Information Services, you may complete and sign the Consent to Release Student Education Records.
