Privacy and Release of Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) addresses the privacy of students by prohibiting the disclosure of personally identifiable information and other information contained in the student’s education record.

For more information about privacy and release of records at UMBC, visit the Registrar’s website.

Students may grant others access to their records by using the Profile Sharing feature in myUMBC.

To authorize release of information to a third party, complete the form located on the Office of the General Counsel website.
