What to Include in Outcomes and Notes
Notes and Outcomes are part of a student's official education records and are covered under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Any comments should be kept relevant to a student’s performance, progress, and academically relevant information. Notes and Outcomes will be accessed by appropriate faculty and staff in order to best assist a student towards their academic goals and graduation. The best comments are brief, professional, and address issues that would be important for yourself or others to know when interacting with the student at a later time. Degree progress and intended programs and courses can be useful to other academic advisors or faculty acting in an advisory capacity.
