To inspect my education records maintained by the school. In order to do so I need to: Submit my request in writing Identify as precisely as possible the records I wish to inspect I understand that: The custodian of my education records will make arrangements for me as promptly as possible and will notify me the time and place where I can inspect my record Access will be allowed no more than 45 days after receipt of written request.
To request that Whitworth University correct any information in my education record that I believe to be inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of my privacy rights In order to do so I need to: Submit a written request identifying the part of the record I want changed and specify why I believe it is inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of my privacy rights
To release my student information to parties outside of Whitworth University In order to do so I need to: Submit written permission to the custodian of my education record identifying the parties to whom I wish the information disclosed.
To withhold my directory information from all parties, both internal and external to Whitworth University, with the exception of the custodian of my education record. In order to do so I need to: Submit written permission to the Registrar’s Office by the second week of the semester It is important to remember that: Directory information will then be withheld indefinitely until the Registrar's Office receives, in writing, a revocation of the request for nondisclosure Whitworth will honor a request to withhold information but cannot assume responsibility to contact me for subsequent permission to release them
