Student Conduct Records
Students or former students applying for jobs or certifications, applying to graduate school, or transferring to another University may be required to disclose whether there were unresolved allegations or they were responsible for a violation of the Student Code of Conduct. When a student applies to graduate school or transfers to another University, the conduct records check is frequently called a Dean’s Certification Check.
Some external parties presume a records check includes copies of reports, letters, or other documentation. Such records are not released as part of a conduct record check.
Records checks include the following:
- the date of the incident
- the allegations and findings
- assigned conduct outcomes
Third parties seeking information about a student’s conduct record must have written authorization from the student or former student in order for us to disclose conduct records information. Please note that FERPA permits UNC Greensboro to disclose information from a student’s education record, without consent, to another school in which the student seeks or intends to enroll.
A request for a Dean’s Certification can be submitted through a Dean’s Certification Request Form. Students and alumni must provide a signed release form providing the University permission to release this information. If you already have a form you have signed as part of your application, please upload it in the request form. Alternately, please complete the Student Consent to Disclose Education Records Form (PDF).
Your Dean’s Certification request will be completed and sent via email within approximately 5-7 business days, after your request is submitted.
If applicable, please ensure the section of the form which includes your personal information is completed and signed or your request cannot be processed.
