Academic Records

Academic records, to include transcripts, are maintained in the Registrar’s Office. Under the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (often referred to as FERPA or the “Buckley Amendment”), students attending a post-secondary educational institution may examine their permanent record maintained by the institution to assure the accuracy of its content.

A more thorough explanation of a student’s rights and privileges under this law is contained in Connections: University Policies and Procedures/Campus Life and Student Services, a copy of which is made available upon matriculation. Further information may be obtained from the University Registrar or on the web at

A charge is assessed for each transcript that is requested. Transcripts may be withheld if the student is not in good financial standing with the University or in default on any federal loan.
