What Is It?

If you need to contact the university about your student record in person or over the phone, we'll ask you to verify your identity by either showing us your photo ID or by stating your established security passphrase.

Your passphrase can be up to 50 alphabetical characters (numbers, symbols and special characters are not accepted), and should be easy to remember but difficult to guess. If your passphrase contains lewd, intimidating, abusive or threatening language, you may be refused service and referred to the Office of Student Conduct.

The security passphrase is intended to protect your privacy, so don't share it with anyone. If you want a third party (e.g., a parent or guardian) to have access to your record, visit the Office of the Registrar in person and complete a Student Consent for Release of Non-Directory Information Form.
