Exceptions to this policy are limited to: 1) release of such information to a specific list of officials with a legitimate educational interest in the record, 2) the release of such information in response to a court order, health or safety emergency, or approved research project, or 3) the release of public directory information which has not been previously restricted by the student.

Records to be disclosed include the student's semester grade point average, cumulative grade point average and any other records deemed appropriate by the Office Fraternity and Sorority Life . Parties to whom the records may be disclosed: Chapter President, Chapter and/or Faculty Advisors, Scholarship Chairperson, (Inter)National Headquarters Staff, Regional Chapter Advisors/Volunteers, Chapter Executive Officers, Council Leadership, the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life & Student Affairs Staff.
