|Business office no longer requests social security numbers|
For security reasons, the Business Office no longer requests social security numbers on forms. The Privacy Release Form (FERPA) has been updated on the business office web site. Departments should destroy old copies of the form and download the newest version at http://www.und.edu/dept/busoff/html/studentform.htm
The privacy release form gives UND written permission from the student to release financial records and/or academic records to a person or organization, as designated on the form. When distributing this form to students, please inform the students that the form must be completed and returned to the UND Business Office before any information will be given to the individuals designated on the form.
The new privacy release form does not expire.
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, prohibits the release of information without the student's written consent. You can obtain additional information on FERPA at: http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/registrar/FERPA/index.htm. If you have additional questions, please contact the Business Office at 777-3911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
