Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards

Records Requests Policies and Forms

The 1974 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of a student's educational record. FERPA applies to all educational institutions receiving funds from the United States Department of Education from kindergarten through university level. Under FERPA, the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSC&CS) may not share the contents of a student's Student Conduct File with anyone other than the student without written consent to do so. Exceptions to FERPA include a health and/or safety emergency or an educational need to know.

The Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards FERPA Release of Information Form must be completed prior to the office releasing the information. A student can also provide the office with a release from another office/agency. Student Conduct information will become a part of the respondent and complainant's (if appropriate) educational records per FERPA. Conduct sanctions, with the exception of Expulsion (Conduct and Residence Hall), Suspension (Conduct and Residence Hall), or revocation of admissions/degree will be removed from the record seven (7) years from the year in which the violation occurred.  Complete the FERPA Release of Information Form.

OSC&CS is responsible for maintaining the record(s). Cases involving student groups/organizations are not considered confidential under FERPA. As a result, OSC&CS does not protect the confidentiality of the student conduct records regarding the conduct of student groups/organizations.

If a College, University, or Employer requires a check of your UToledo Student Conduct History, please provide the applicable form to OSC&CS either in person or via e-mail. Please allow the office five (5) business days to process the form. OSC&CS will complete the form, and send it to the appropriate office/personnel. 

Individuals who wish to obtain a vopy of a UToledo Police Incident or Accident report may do so. Request a copy of a policy report by completing University Police Report Request Form.
The report will be e-mailed unless requested otherwise. For more information, please see the University Police Report Request Page
