Student Records

Kansas State University is in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended; this law established specific guidelines concerning the release of information and the students’ privileges to inspect and review their own educational records. The Kansas State University student records policy can be found on the Registrar’s website. For additional information about student records see Student Confidentiality.

Directory Information

Certain information concerning students is considered to be open to the public upon inquiry. This public information is called directory information. See the Student Records Policy.

Restriction of Records

In the case of a student who is delinquent in an account to the university, including unpaid traffic or parking violations, or about whom official disciplinary action has been taken, the appropriate university official may request that the student’s record not be released. The effect of this action is that transcripts are not released, and registration forms are withheld. In order for the action to be rescinded, the hold must be cleared via KSIS, indicating that the student has met the obligation. For more information about when records may be withheld, see the Student Records Policy.
