The university encourages students to seek support if they believe they have experienced any prohibited conduct, or if they are under investigation.

Commonly used forms

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student records.  If you want the Title IX Office to be able to speak with someone, such as a parent or advisor, you will need to use this form to waive your privacy rights under FERPA.
  • All Respondents and Reporting parties have the right to an advisor throughout the investigation process.  All advisors are required to sign a confidentiality agreement prior to attending an interview or otherwise participating in the university’s investigatory process. For more information about the role of advisors, please see the Student Misconduct- Sexual, Interpersonal, and Protected Class Misconduct policy VII.C.
