IMPORTANT NOTICE TO STUDENTS ABOUT FERPA (PDF) - The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 [FERPA] is intended to protect the privacy of a student's educational records, to establish the rights of students to inspect and review their education records and to provide guideline for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal or formal hearings. To fulfill basic requirements for compliance with the Act, each institution must inform each student of his/her right to prevent disclosure of personally identifiable information.
The following information is considered “directory” information: name, address, dates of attendance, full or part time status, class level, fields of study, degrees conferred (including dates), honors and awards, date and place of birth.
Under the provisions of FERPA, currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of such information. To prevent disclosure, written notification must be received by the Office of the Registrar by the end of the Drop/Add period during the fall or spring semesters (see Academic calendar for specific dates) and will remain in effect until rescinded in writing. Any requests made from non-institutional persons or organizations will be refused. Students who do not want their directory information released to a third party must fill out the FERPA No Disclosure form (PDF).
Please note: In order for GMercyU to speak with your parents or other concerned parties about your financial aid or your University bill, you will need to complete a FERPA Consent Form with the respective office. The consent form also will be enclosed in your financial aid award packet. Students who would like the Registrar's Office to mail their grade report at the end of each semester to their parents must fill out the Grade Disclosure form (PDF).
For more information on FERPA, see the U.S. Department of Education website at www2.ed.gov.
If you need a transcript, you will need to fill out a transcript request form (PDF). Transcripts are normally processed within 2-3 days of the day requested, except if the University is closed. Transcripts will be mailed to your home or a third party in a signed, sealed envelope. Due to privacy considerations, transcripts will not be received nor sent via fax.
Change of name will not be processed using the transcript form. If you need to change your name or address you must do so by filling out the Change of Name/Address (PDF) form and providing the appropriate documentation.
Transcript requests will not be processed for you if your financial obligations to the University have not been satisfied.
To ensure we can provide you with what you need, please be sure to:
- Complete the form including all necessary signatures.
- Mail the form to the respective office listed or bring to the Campbell Solution Center.
- A change of name also requires a copy of a legal document, i.e. marriage certificate, social security card, or court document. Please provide both a signed copy of the Change of Name form and a copy of the required legal document with your request.
