FERPA Scenario Q&A

Question:  A person comes to the College of Arts and Sciences with a letter containing a signature that gives consent to release the student's transcript.  Do you give the transcript to that person?

Answer:  No. Because the request is from a source from outside of the University, it should be referred to the Office of the Registrar. The Registrar's office will not release the list because grade point average is not directory information.

* General Rule: Do not give out student information that pertains to grade point average to anyone without prior written permission of that student. ALL outside requests for any information such as Dean's Lists must be referred to the Office of the Registrar. Information about the recruiting firm could be provided to students in the appropriate major.
