Home Institutions do not need a student’s written consent to release student information to a Teaching Institution under a written consortium agreement. Disclosures may be made to officials at the Teaching Institution who have a legitimate interest in the student’s records. In general, these records may be admissions records, grades, student account/ledger or financial aid records. Disclosure may be made to other school officials, including professors, whom the Teaching Institution has determined have legitimate educational interests.
It is recommended that schools indicate how student data is exchanged under a consortium agreement in their annual privacy notification to students.
