This tutorial is a learning tool designed to provide students, faculty, and staff with a better understanding of the confidentiality protections that Temple policy and federal law affords the records that Temple University maintains about its students.

The tutorial is not an exhaustive treatment of the topic of confidentiality of student records, but it does address the essential elements of applicable University policy. It is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice. Specific questions regarding confidentiality of student records should be addressed to your supervisor, the Dean of Students, or the Office of University Counsel.
