Access to Student Records
Both FERPA and the UIUC Student and Course Data Access Policy require that anyone accessing private student records have a "legitimate educational interest" in the information. According to policy:
- Student data may be used only as required for fulfilling officially assigned University responsibilities.
- Student data may be shared among University staff as necessary to carry out those responsibilities; however, do not use email to share student data unless it is encrypted.
- Private information must not be released to third parties outside the University, including parents of students.
All outside parties must contact Registration Services, 333-6565, to seek release of restricted or non-directory student records.
