Registrar Services: Student Records

Rights of Access To and Privacy of Student Records

In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, the release of personally identifiable information, other than directory information, is made only upon written request of the student. The University of Mary defines the following as directory information:

  • Name
  • Local address and phone number
  • Permanent address and phone number
  • E-mail address
  • Date and place of birth
  • Full-time/part-time status
  • Major field of study
  • Dates of attendance
  • Degree awarded
  • Academic year
  • Honors and awards

A student who does not wish to be included in the directory may obtain the necessary form from the Office of the Registrar. If a student receives an honor or recognition at the University of Mary, the Office of Public Affairs will routinely release the names of the student and his or her parents to the media unless requested not to do so.

A student, by appointment, may view his or her academic records in the Office of the Registrar.

Parents or guardians of students who are dependents under the age of 18 have the same rights regarding information as the student.
