AP.1.3 Right of College to Refuse Access

SUNY Morrisville reserves the right to refuse a student or applicant request to access to the following records:

  1. The financial statement of the student's parents.
  2. Letters and statements of recommendation for which the student has waived the right of access.
  3. Records connected with an application for admission to attend SUNY Morrisville or another unit of the State University of New York if that application was denied.
  4. Those records which are excluded from the FERPA definition of education records (20 USC §1232g (a) (4); 34 CFR §99.3).

For those records that contain information on more than one student, the requesting student has the right to view only those portions of the record that pertain to his or her own education record. Personally identifiable information of others may be redacted.

Refusal to Provide Copies of Records

SUNY Morrisville reserves the right to deny to the student transcripts or copies of records not required to be made available under FERPA if the student has any accrued debts or outstanding obligations, owed to the College or to any agency thereof.
