FERPA Policy

Students have the right to make a request of Baylor University to inspect and review their educational records and the University must comply with these requests within 45 days. Furthermore, students may also request that their educational records be released to a third party.

Judicial Affairs Disciplinary Records are retained for a period of 7 years and may be kept longer due to special circumstances such as suspension or expulsion or as deemed necessary by the Associate Dean Student Conduct Administration. Students may also submit a petition to have their disciplinary file expunged the last semester prior to graduation. The petition to expunge is a courtesy provided by Baylor University and is not a requirement of law. Baylor University has no obligation to expunge a student's disciplinary record.
