Retention of Student Educational Records

Students have a right to access his/her records maintained by the University. The University maintains educational records of all students permanently. The educational records include documents related to admissions, enrollment agreement, course grades, and related academic information. These records are kept under the custody of the Director of Records, who ensures that the privacy and confidentiality of all student records are protected under the applicable law.

The University fully incorporates the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) in its entirety. A written consent from the student is required before educational records may be disclosed to third parties with the exception of regulatory educational agencies. Please see Lincoln University's Records Retention Policy and Student Record Access Policies.

A student seeking to review his/her educational records must submit a written request to the Records Office. The school is not responsible for loss of records due to but not limited to: nature, war, and destruction as a result of severe weather, vandalism, or acts of terrorism.
