The University of Alabama has long subscribed to the ethical principles for confidentiality of student records that are recommended by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. Following passage of the Family Education and Privacy Act of 1974 (the “Buckley Amendments”), and of subsequent amendments in 1988 and 1990, the University established policies and procedures to implement that legislation. The statement of these policies is available upon request in the Office of the University Registrar.
For more information, contact The University of Alabama, Office of the University Registrar, 206 Student Services Center, Box 870134, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0134; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Web site: registrar.ua.edu.
Each student is responsible for selecting and registering for the courses that (a) are needed to maintain reasonable progress toward the desired degree; (b) will satisfy all requirements for the desired degree by the time the student expects to graduate; and (c) conform to University regulations. Students are expected to pursue successful completion of the courses for which they register.
Students are also responsible for the following:
- The student must maintain a current mailing address and a current local residence address on file. Students may make address and phone number updates at mybama.ua.edu.
- The student must maintain his/her Tide Text Alert on their Student Tab in mybama.
- The student must respond promptly to all communications received from The University of Alabama.
