OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR
CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING
In the conduct of its normal business, Mercer University collects, maintains and archives confidential academic information on students. The University, under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, is responsible for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of student records and is specifically prohibited from releasing non-directory information to third parties without the student's written consent. The act, however, permits University officials access to confidential information on a legitimate "need to know" basis.
Access to confidential student records information is granted to assist you in conducting your business on behalf of the University and its students. Accepting this access makes you responsible and liable for maintaining this confidentiality. Under no circumstances should you share student information, disclose any of your Mercer University password(s), or allow anyone to use your access.
Persons who violate the confidentiality of student records may be subject to disciplinary action.
Please check all that apply.
I DO NOT require access (provide name and signature ONLY)
