Revised 402

Effective Date: 
Monday, October 30, 2000

This University Policy has been revised in light of the new regulations governing the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The definition of“Education Records” is revised to clarify that “sole possession” records are, among other things, those that are “used only as a personal memory aid.” The definition of “Directory Information” is revised to add “enrollment status.” The section on disclosure of education records without prior consent of the student is revised to add a section entitled “Litigation.”The section addressing disclosure of alcohol or drug violations to parents is revised to clarify that it applies only to students who are under the age of 21 at the time of disclosure to the parent. Changes unrelated to the new FERPA regulations include an update of the cost of an official copy of a transcript, from $1 to $3, and minor editorial changes.
