Academic Records

The Registrar's Office is responsible for maintaining information regarding students’ academic progress at RLNC, including grade reports and permanent academic records. The Registrar's Office also collects and maintains current and accurate student information, such as tribal enrollment status, address, program of study, and names of academic advisor(s). This information is required by the federal government for determination of funding, so any changes of personal data, such as change of address, change of program, or change of advisor, should be reported to the Registrar’s Office.

RLNC requires a written authorization (FERPA Release of Information Form linked at right) signed by the student, before releasing information such as student grades, transcripts, and other data, in compliance with the Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), which governs the privacy of student records.

Directory-type information/data, however, may be given to any inquirer without written authorization from the student. This includes the following:

  • Student Name

  • Local address and telephone number

  • Permanent address and telephone number

  • E-mail address

  • Place of birth

  • Major field of study

  • Dates of attendance and of program completion

  • Full- or part-time enrollment status

  • Year in school (class)

  •  Diplomas/certificates awarded

  • Scholastic honors and awards received

  • Other educational institutions attended

Students may request that any or all of this information remain confidential by completing a FERPA Non-Disclosure Request Form (use link at right) and returning it to the Registrar's Office.
