Each student has a Permanent Record maintained online or in the Registrar’s Office. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid maintains student financial aid records. Accounting maintains student ledgers records in the Accounting Office.
CalArts complies with student rights established under the law affecting student records (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974). Within the CalArts community, only those members, individually and collectively, acting in the students’ educational interests are allowed access to students’ records. A description of the process used for compliance with the Act is provided in this publication and includes the rights of student access to all records except where described. Questions should be discussed with the Registrar (academic records), the Controller (accounting records) or with the Director of Financial Aid (financial aid records).
