HOW CAN I
AMEND A RECORD?

A student who wishes to ask UNL to amend a record should write the school official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants to change, and specify why it should be changed.

If UNL decides not to amend the record as requested, UNL will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
