Release of Information
It is the responsibility of the Office of the Registrar to ensure that we protect the student personal information we hold. While students have the right of access to personal information about themselves, in order to disclose personal information about a student to a third party, the Office of the Registrar requires that student’s written consent, except in a few specific and limited circumstances.
ATIPP legislation defines personal information as recorded information about an identifiable individual, including name, address, telephone number, age, student or other identification number, information about the individual's educational status or history.
In compliance with the ATIPP legislation, members of the Office of the Registrar cannot disclose grades, registration details or other personal information to a parent unless we have written consent from the student. The Office of the Registrar encourages parents to discuss this important issue with students and to trust their children to succeed on their own.
