Release of Records
Numerous members of the DU faculty and staff receive requests from students or former students to complete forms that include a request for information about student conduct records at the University. These forms typically serve the following purposes: Undergraduate transfer to another institution; Graduate/professional/law school admission; Admission to the Bar (by state); Security clearances for employment (typically federal), etc. Access and release of records of student conduct proceedings are governed by applicable Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and other privacy laws.
When requested through our online "Deans Certification & Institutional Action Letter Request Form", we will provide a brief statement with an overview of a student or former student's conduct history. The information released will include the findings, rationale, outcomes, and will indicate whether or not a student is in good conduct standing. Specific documents, including pictures and videos, are not released to any entity unless required by law. Per University policy, students may review their record Student Conduct Record in person by making an appointment with Student Conduct or for a summary, they can complete the online request noted above.
Records for alternative resolution processes, such as Medical Amnesty and Restorative Justice Conferences, are considered internal records for University purposes and will not be released through the Release of Records process as outlined above.
