What is an Education Record?

Most information provided to GSU by a student for use in the educational process is considered an education record. Some examples are:

  • Personally Identifiable Information (i.e., student name, social security number, date of birth)
  • Grades
  • Class Schedules

The storage media in which you find this information does not matter. Education records may be:

  • A document in the Registrar's Office
  • A computer printout in your office
  • A class list on your desk
  • A computer display screen
  • Notes you have taken during an advisement session
