Your file and academic record (grades) are maintained by Student Services in compliance with the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (1992). As a result, only faculty and staff of the University who have a need to review your record (e.g., for promotion, advising, scholarship) will be provided access to relevant information. The Registrar or her/his designate will release student information when required by law (e.g., a summons or subpoena) or to the police when she/he is satisfied that it is in either the public interest or the interest of the student involved to do so.
Requests from collection agencies, acting on behalf of the Federal or Provincial Government with respect to student assistance are normally made under the provisions of a law or regulation and the information may be provided by the Registrar.
Individuals (the public or other students) wishing to contact a student must have a legitimate reason. Should it be determined that the situation is an emergency, Student Services will accept a message which will be delivered directly to the student.

Course evaluations are questionnaires whereby students enrolled in a credit course individually assess that course. Student questionnaires are important tools in ascertaining teaching effectiveness, quality of resources and facilities, and will be used, in conjunction with other components, to evaluate the faculty.
Students will be asked to assist in the distribution and collection of course evaluation forms. The faculty shall designate one student who will distribute and collect the evaluation forms, mark the class list so that each student registered has an opportunity to respond, and return the forms directly to Human Resources.
All forms are held in confidence by Human Resources until after the grading process is complete after which all forms are transcribed to ensure the anonymity of students.
