Student Records

Your student records are protected from disclosure by the Berkeley Campus Policy Governing Disclosure of Information from Student Records (1994). All records of your business as a student are confidential except:

  • Your name
  • Your dates of attendance
  • Major (if declared)
  • Degree(s) awarded
  • Date degree(s) awarded

This information is used publicly in such for the posted Dean's List, during Commencement in the program, and at other official CNR functions (Honors Symposia, etc). If you wish not to have any of this information disclosed, you must contact the Office of Instruction and Student Affairs in writing to that effect.

CNR cannot give out information regarding any other activities (such as your transcript or financial aid status) to anyone other than you, including your parents. Only the Office of Instruction and Student Affairs (deans, undergraduate staff advisors, college advisors, ombudspersons and support staff) has access to your records.
