Use Of Student Information
|Oversight Unit:||INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH|
It is the University's policy to insure the confidentiality of student social security numbers and data related to student educational records used by both internal and external audiences. The University also holds certain responsibilities related to quality assurance and external compliance deemed official University business. In order to meet quality assurance and compliance requests, the University bears the responsibility and holds the right to collect, analyze, maintain, and generate internal/external reports involving student social security numbers and educational record data. Such data must be reported in summary (collated) form and must not disclose individual student social security numbers or educational records in the final document.
This applies to all individuals, departments, divisions, and subgroups within the University.
This policy is in accordance with the NMU Student Handbook: Student Rights and Responsibilities, Student Code, University Policies and Related Documents (1997) parts 1.2.2.03 and 1.2.2.04. For further information on restrictions on release of Educational Records, please refer to page 7 of the NMU Student Handbook.
