Release without Prior Consent
There are scenarios where you may not have prior consent from a student but you may release information. You may release directory or non-directory information only in the following scenarios:
- The information is being requested by a school official with a legitimate educational interest. If you have questions or concerns about a request, contact the Office of the Registrar for guidance.
- For health and safety emergencies: Contact the Office of the Registrar for guidance.
UNLV periodically receives other types of requests and may release student information without prior consent. Any UNLV employee may receive these requests and should direct them to the entities identified below.
The following requests should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar via The Office of Public Records::
- Organizations conducting studies to improve instruction
- Accrediting organizations for programs that undergo oversight by an accrediting board
All judicial orders, subpoenas, and law enforcement inquiries should be directed to the UNLV General Counsel.
*If a student has a “no release” on their record, the university may not release any information to a third party except to comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena or for a health and safety emergency.
