Release of Information Request

Student Conduct & Community Standards maintains records regarding student involvement in alleged incidents of academic and non-academic misconduct. Student conduct records are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and information regarding a particular student's history is typically not released without prior student consent. 

If a University department has a need to obtain knowledge regarding a student's past conduct history, the form below should be completed by the department, the student, and then provided to the Office of the Associate Dean of Students. Departments should be aware that information will be released only where there is a legitimate need to know in order to conduct University business, and that Student Conduct & Community Standards may refuse to release information at any time. Legitimate reasons may include, but are not limited to, pre-employment screening, student leadership position pre-screening, standing required to receive University accommodation, etc. 

Most requests take approximately two business days to process. For any questions regarding this process, please contact the Office of the Associate Dean of Students at 361-825-6219.
