Data Maintained by the University

The university accumulates data and maintains records to enable staff and faculty to plan educational opportunities to meet the needs of individual students, to understand students better, to counsel more effectively with them, and to assist them in continuing in graduate education or securing employment after graduation.

The university maintains student records in the Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Fiscal Affairs, Academic Affairs, Teacher Certification, Deans, Faculty, Placement, Institutional Advancement, and Planning and Institutional Effectiveness. These offices make provisions for students and the parents of dependent students to review and challenge the accuracy of records when appropriate and upon request. A student must file all changes regarding name, address, and major with the registrar’s office during the current semester. The university regards students’ records as confidential.

The Office of Admissions retains the minimum of the following documents in a student’s permanent-education record:

  • admission application
  • transfer transcripts
  • test scores (if applicable)
  • correspondence
  • any other documents pertaining to the student’s academic career at Texas A&M University-Texarkana

The university releases student records only for the faculty and professional staff’s use for authorized university-related purposes. The university releases a student’s academic records only with written consent of the student or due to a court subpoena.

Updating the Student Record

The university bases records of a student’s biographical information, address, etc. upon the information on the student’s application for admission.  Students must report changes made to their records after they have registered in writing to the registrar’s office.  Once a student has attended the university, the university will not process name changes on the student e-mail account.

The student is responsible for any university communication the university mailed to the name and address on record.  A student must present sufficient documentation when he or she changes his or her name.  Students may locate these listed items on the student-update form on the Admissions and Registrar Web sites.
