87.0 III-6.00- POLICY ON ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS AND FINANCIAL AID RECORDS
 
 
  (Approved by the Board of Regents, January 11, 1990)
 
 
   I.   ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS
 
        Each institution in the University of Maryland System will
        maintain an academic transcript for each student who
        enrolls.  The transcript will conform to standards as
        established by the American Association of Collegiate
        Registrars and Admissions Officers, and will include
        courses and grades for each term of enrollment.  Each
        institution will develop policies concerning resident
        credit and the calculation of grade point averages.
 
 
  II.   WITHHOLDING TRANSCRIPTS AND RECORDS
 
        An institution may withhold copies of official academic
        transcripts and financial aid records requested by or on
        behalf of a student who is delinquent in his or her
        financial obligations.  A student is defined as an
        individual who is or who has been in attendance at an
        institution in the University of Maryland System.
 
        Such delinquency may include delinquency in the payment of
        institutional charges and/or default on a Stafford Loan or
        any education loan made, guaranteed, or reinsured in whole
        or in part by the federal or Maryland State government made
        or received for attendance at an institution in the
        University of Maryland System.  In those instances where
        (1) a student requesting the education records is in
        default on a Stafford Loan or any education loan made,
        guaranteed, or reinsured in whole or in part by the federal
        or Maryland State government and (2) the institutional
        business office has been notified that the student has
        filed a bankruptcy petition, copies of financial aid
        records and official academic transcripts may be withheld
        only after consultation with the Office of the Attorney
        General.
