Access to Student Records

The Graduate Secretary maintains files on all students in or applying to the graduate program. A student’s file will usually contain admissions-related materials (applications, transcripts, letters of reference), the Graduate Program Record, evaluations, and any correspondence with the Anthropology Graduate Student Committee (AGSC). Supervisory Committee members and the AGSC have direct access to student files.

Supervisors may show students documents from their files at their own discretion so long as the confidentiality of referees and evaluators is not violated. Under Freedom of Information legislation, students may also request their files (written notice is required 30 days prior to release of materials from files). For more information, please contact the Graduate Secretary.
