Requests for student information should be tagged with "Office of University Registrar" using the Departments dropdown located below the request box

Prior to public posting, requests will be reviewed and possibly edited or rejected:

  • Submissions will be edited to redact or remove sensitive and/or protected information
  • Visit for information on fees which may be charged to cover the cost of producing public records

  • For public University police records, contact the Department of Public Safety:


The University is committed to fulfilling our responsibility to provide public records requested as promptly as possible. However, because of a large volume of requests and legal obligation to protect confidential information, it often takes time before we are able to begin work on a new request. 

We ask requestors to consider their request and be as specific as possible about the records they truly seek. Please note our office is unable to fulfill University-wide requests for "all e-mails" from the over 100,000 e-mail addresses maintained for students, faculty, and staff. A search request must at minimum identify individual names or departments.
