Permission to Release Disciplinary Records

Please complete the following form, answering all questions, in order to provide the Office of the Dean of Students permission to release any Montclair State University disciplinary records.

If your form requires graduation verification, transcript requests, GPA or any type of academic record verification, please send your form directly to the Registrar’s Office and they will forward it to the Dean of Students’ Office once it is complete. Please contact them directly for information on the releases they require.

A student’s disciplinary record will be maintained in the Office of the Dean of Students. The case record of a student found responsible for charge(s) against them, with sanctions less than suspension and expulsion, will generally be maintained in the Office of the Dean of Student for seven years from the calendar year of record, after which they are destroyed. The disciplinary case record of a student who has been placed on Disciplinary Suspension or Expulsion will be permanently maintained as official records by the Office of the Dean of Students.

All forms must be completed and submitted 7-10 business days before their deadline in order to be processed. Please use one form for each entity requesting information.
