How to Be Involved
We set high standards for academic integrity because we believe genuine learning is most likely to occur in an environment of trust. You can help us by discussing with your student(s) the importance of integrity in their work, and everyday life, and how Maryland's strict academic integrity standards (including an Honor Pledge signed on major assignments) will help your student acquire habits of honesty and responsibility that will serve them well for a lifetime.
Disclosure Of Student Education Records
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, was designed to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the rights of students to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading information
Due to FERPA, Parents and/or Guardians do not have immediate access to their student's records. Students who wish to share their disciplinary records with others must complete a waiver form and submit it directly to the Office of Student Conduct.
For more information on FERPA, please visit the University's Office of the Register Student Privacy (FERPA Explained) webpage, or the U.S. Department of Education webpage on Protecting Student Privacy, which holds information about FERPA.
