STUDENT RECORDS: Privacy/ Confidentiality
You have the right to restrict the release of your student information or to authorize the release of information to specified individuals.
To restrict the release of your information complete the FERPA Opt-Out Form. Requesting confidential status will prevent employees of Georgia Regents University from providing any directory or confidential information to you or other parties. When a confidentiality restriction is in place we can only discuss your record with you if you appear in person with picture identification or if you release the restriction.
To remove the confidential status, complete the bottom of the FERPA Opt-Out Form.
Students may complete a FERPA consent form to authorize release of their academic record information to specific individuals named in the release by completing the Authorization to Release Information Form.
FERPA stands for the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. This legislation protects the privacy of student records and regulates how the information is utilized. These are your rights and it is to your benefit to familiarize yourself with them. Please see FERPA to learn more regarding the privacy of records. Students may also view policies and procedures in the GRU Handbook.
