Fisk students have the right to inspect and review their education records within 45 days from the day the University receives a request for access. If a student wishes to review parts of their education record that are not directly available to them through Banner (the student information system), the following procedures should be followed:
- Submit a written, signed request to the director of the department maintaining the record being requested.
- Identify the record(s) to be inspected.
- State to whom the record is to be released.
- Indicate the purpose of the request.
The university official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the University official to whom the request was submitted, that official will advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
