FERPA - Disposal of Education Records


Education records at FGCU will be retained only as long as valid and useful or for the period of time required by State of Florida or University record retention policies, whichever is longer. If a written request for access to review the academic record has been received, such disposal may not occur until access has been granted and the review complete. Education records must be disposed of properly through an appropriate means of confidential disposal.
