What is a student educational record?

  • Nearly every piece of information provided by a student to the university for use in the educational process is considered a student educational record:
    • personal information
    • enrollment records
    • grades
    • schedules
  • Student educational records may exist in nearly any form, including:
    • documents in the registrar's office
    • computer printouts in your office
    • class lists on your desktop
    • computer display screens
    • notes you have taken during an advising session
