The policy provides for your right to be informed about where student records are located, to review your own records, to request corrections, to grieve alleged violations of privacy, to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information and to file complaints with the U.S. Department of Education. The Dean's Office has designated student names, email addresses, terms of attendance, major fields of study and certificates earned as public information under the policy.
