Privacy

IU respects the privacy of all students equally, in their studies, work, and personal lives, and therefore will only inquire into, record, use, or communicate a person’s immigration status when required by law or when necessary to protect a person’s safety; in particular, we protect the privacy of all student records as required by the Federal Educational Records Protection Act (FERPA).
