Student Records

 Franklin & Marshall College has a policy of maintaining academic, disciplinary, health and financial records for its students. The recording of such information is necessary to protect the rights of both the student and the College, and while the student is in residence or consulting the College about his or her plans, such records are valuable in the College’s basic purpose of facilitating the student’s development as an educated person.

The College is mindful that student records in general should be held in a relationship of confidentiality between the student and the institution. Although students may not request that a record be withdrawn, destroyed, or improperly altered, they may appropriately expect the College to release confidential information only with their prior knowledge and consent, except under unusual circumstances described above titled “Protection Against Improper Disclosure.”
