Record Request/Check

The Office of Student Accountability & Support maintains a disciplinary record for every student found responsible for a violation of the University Standard of Conduct. Disciplinary files are considered educational records and cannot be provided to outside parties without the student’s permission. However, some employers and graduate & professional schools require that applicants authorize the release of their disciplinary records in order to be considered for employment or admission. A Release Authorization Form is required to release a student’s disciplinary file.

The files maintained by the Office of Student Accountability & Support are separate from transcripts, which are maintained by the Office of the University Registrar.

Records are retained for 5 years for incidents prior to November 3, 2015 and incidents after November 3, 2015 records are retained for 7 years after University action is completed. Records are retained permanently for incidents involving a suspension, dismissal or expulsion.

Please note that as of Fall 2014, incidents involving discrimination & sexual assault are handled by the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX. They can be reached at 573-882-3880 or civilrights-titleix@missouri.edu.

We only have access to the disciplinary conduct records of our students. For academic information you can contact the Office of the University Registrar and for academic conduct, you can contact the Office of Academic Integrity.
