Financial Good Standing
Financial good standing, and a university record clear of holds, are required for students to receive services. Services, including but not limited to, transcript issuance, certificate release, and course registration will not be provided to students with a financial balance due or a hold of any kind on their record. Holds are based on oustanding obligations and my be financial.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law that governs the educational records of eligible students. It grants students continuous access to their educational records upon request, allows students to amend their records if they feel they are inaccurate, and restricts how and when their educational records can be disclosed. All students at Mason control access to all of their educational records and must give consent before that information is disclosed to any third party (including parents, spouses, employers, etc). Please note that Mason does not disclose non-directory information unless the student has signed a consent form or the disclosure meets a qualified exception under FERPA.
