Access to Student Records/FERPA Policy
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. One of these rights is to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the University receives a request for access. Students should submit a written request to the Office of Admissions and Records, located in the Library 121. For the full process: FERPA-Academic Notice
Once a student has been admitted into the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Fran and Earl Ziegler College of Nursing Office, they are required to provide documentation of immunizations. This documentation is to be uploaded into the Student Center To-Do list, located in Self-Service. Once a student provides documentation of immunization records to an institution for their educational purposes, the records are protected by FERPA (see Federal Register & FERPA-HIPAA guidance). The College of Nursing Office of Student Affairs cannot provide you a copy of your immunization records. Students may view those records by submitting a written request to the Office of Admissions and Records, located in the Library 121. It is recommended that students keep copies of all immunization records provided for documentation. For the full request process: FERPA-Academic Notice
