Reviewing Your Student Record

Students may inspect and review their education records on written request to the person in charge of the records. That person will comply with the request as soon as reasonably possible, or within 45 days after the request has been made, as required by law.

Students have the right to review and inspect all education records in their file except:

  • Financial information submitted by their parents. 
  • Confidential letters and recommendations associated with admissions, honors, employment, or job placement to which they have waived their rights of inspection and review or which were placed in the file before January 1975.
  • Education records containing information about more than one student, in which case the institution will permit access only to that part of the record pertaining to the inquiring student.
  • Records connected with an application to attend the University if that application was denied.

For more information regarding student records and student record disclosure please see the Seattle University Student Records Guidelines.

The School of Law Office of the Registrar is the custodian for law students' official education records. Requests to review your education record should be submitted in writing to the School of Law Office of the Registrar.

Reviewing Exams and Grade Calculations

Exam review is coordinated by the faculty administrative assistants. After each semester, once the exams have been returned to the faculty offices and filed, notification of exam review procedures will be sent to students by the faculty's Coordinator of Administrative Support.

Course grading materials are retained by the course professor. The faculty administrative assistants and the Office of the Registrar cannot release information on grade calculation, grade curves, or grade ranges to students. Questions about grading should be directed to the course professor.

Transfer of Sponsorship

Seattle University assumed sponsorship of the University of Puget Sound School of Law effective September 1, 1994, as approved by the American Bar Association on August 10, 1994. All rights and privileges previously granted by the University of Puget Sound School of Law to law school students and graduates remain intact. Seattle University School of Law is the repository for all University of Puget Sound School of Law student records.
