Federal law mandates that all users at UTD accept the following agreement regarding the confidentiality of student records.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act defines an educational official as:

  • a person employed by the institution in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or other support position.
  • a person serving on an institutional governing body.
  • a person employed by, or under contract to, the institution to perform a special task, such as an attorney or auditor.

Student Academic Information Based onLegitimate Educational Interest

Educational officials are able to access a student’s record if they have a legitimate educational interest.

  • In viewing Enrollment Services or Registrar’s Office scanned images of an applicant/student, I am declaring I have a legitimate educational interest in the applicant/student’s academic record.
  • I understand my access does not include viewing images for applicants/students from another UT-Dallas program or discipline for purposes outside my legitimate educational interest (i.e., recruitment for programs outside my discipline).
  • I will view documents and materials for the specific purpose of admission or resolution of a student-related issue and will not use or re-release acquired information for any other reason.
  • If I do retrieve a student file flagged with a FERPA notation, I realize I may release NO information about this student.

By clicking the continue button you are acknowledging and in agreement with the above University policies.
