What is a Student Education Record?

Virtually any information provided by a student to the university or created through the educational process is considered a student educational record. Common examples are:

  • personal information
  • enrollment records
  • grades
  • schedules

The storage medium in which you find this information does not matter. Examples of things that may be student educational records are:

  • a document in the registrar's office,
  • a computer printout in your office,
  • a class list on your desktop,
  • a computer display screen,
  • notes you have taken during an advisement session
