Frequently Asked Questions
Does the University have any written policy about information from student records that can be shared with parents?
In using the Consent Form, please know that talking with your student and working through any issues, before contacting the Office of Community Standards, is very much preferred. The Office of Community Standards looks for parents and guardians to be involved in the process as much as necessary, but also to allow students to take responsibility for their actions and decisions.
