Privacy and Reporting


Student records may be disclosed to University officials who have a legitimate educational interest. It is within the University's discretion to determine what qualifies legitimate educational interest and whether student privacy interests outweigh such interest. This may include, but is not limited to: honors, prizes, and/or fellowships.

Beyond University officials with a legitimate interest, SCCS will only disclose disciplinary records for students who were ever considered not in good disciplinary standing. This record includes the student’s violation(s), the corresponding sanction(s), and the date of determination.

To read more about the exceptions that apply to the disclosure of student records information, please review the Essential Policies.

Current students and alumni may request a self-certification here.
