All employees within the Office of the University Registrar who work with student records must sign the Confidentiality of Student Records statement. This document explains that academic records may only be disclosed to or discussed with individuals with legitimate educational interest. After signing this statement, it becomes part of the employee’s file.
All university offices should consider developing a procedure for handling confidential academic records and ensuring that all staff are educated in these procedures.
