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.
Newfoundland and Labrador's Access to Information and Protection of Privcacy (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 and related University policy, Registrar's Office staff members are not permitted to disclose grades, registration details, academic history, or other personal information to any third party, including a parent, without written consent from the student.
A Release of Information Form is available to download (in .pdf format), complete, and print here. The completed and signed form must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar by the student directly either in person, by facsimile to 709.864.2337, or as a scanned email attachment sent from the student's @mun.ca e-mail account to firstname.lastname@example.org.
