The Act specifies that a college official has 45 days to respond to a student’s request to view their records. Russell Sage College will initially respond to a request by setting up an appointment with the student within the 45 day period. Ideally, the student will be able to access the records within a couple of weeks.
All records must be reviewed in the presence of a College official. The student may be asked to show proper identification to the college official and sign a permit form. Students may request a copy of their records in most cases, but the College is entitled to charge for copies. Copies cannot be made of records when a “hold” status exists or when the names of other students or information related to other students are involved (i.e., restricted records such as a grade list).
