What is a Student Educational Record?

  • just about any information provided by a student to the university for use in the educational process is considered a student educational record:
    • personal information
    • enrollment records
    • grades
      • schedules
  • the storage media 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 an employee's office
    • a class list on your desktop
    • a computer display screen
    • notes you have taken during an advisement session
