NOTE: The following requirements protect the confidentiality of academic information upon the death of a former student or alumnus of the college:

The Registrar’s Office will evaluate each request for the release of a transcript or other academic records of a deceased student on the individual merits of that request and reserves the right to deny the request in whole or to release only part of the academic records that are requested. The Registrar’s Office does not release academic records of deceased students to the news media or for research purposes.

The closest living next-of-kin may submit a written request along with the following certified documents in English:

  • Birth certificate of the requestor showing the relationship to the deceased, and
  • Death certificate of former student or alumnus
If there is no living next-of-kin, academic records may be requested by the executor of the estate or holder of power of attorney for the deceased. A written request along with a notarized copy of the executor statement or power of attorney in English is required.
