The Office of the Registrar provides students with enrollment assistance, enrollment deadlines, tuition adjustment/refund deadlines, grade reports, official transcripts, enrollment verifications, diploma, grade reports, information regarding the release and withholding of private information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), information on residency for tuition purposes, veterans services and more.
FERPA (the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law that governs the privacy of student education records, access to those records and disclosure of information from them. FERPA requires written consent from students for the disclosure of financial and educational information and records. Without written consent, MIAD is legally prohibited from releasing a student's personal, academic or financial information to anyone except the student, regardless of the student's age.
Only designated "directory" information can be shared with anyone outside MIAD.
Restricted information includes but is not limited to grades, disciplinary history and action, health concerns, and the remaining balance in accounts, including the Meal Plan. Exceptions to FERPA are allowed in life-threatening emergencies.
