Review of Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, provide the student with the right to inspect and review the contents of his/her educational records (except as limited under the law). The student is entitled to obtain copies, at his/her expense, to receive explanations or interpretations of the records and to request a hearing to challenge the content. Access to records must be requested on a form available from the official in charge of the particular record. Informal Review: follow the procedure requesting examination of records. An official will date and sign a summary of action form which will be maintained in the student’s file. Formal Review: If the question of accuracy is not resolved during the informal review, the student may request a formal review. The Academic Appeals Committee will hear challenges concerning these records. Challenging a grade must occur before the end of the fall or spring semester immediately following awarding of the grade.
