1. What are Education Records?

Information recorded in any form that is directly related to a student and maintained by a college or university and by those acting for the college or university.

  • personal information (e.g., ID#, SSN, etc.)
  • records of student discipline
  • enrollment records
  • grades/transcripts
  • papers and tests

The storage medium in which you find this information does not matter. A student educational record may be:

  • a document in the registrar's office
  • a computer printout in your office
  • a class list on your desktop
  • a computer display screen
