Subject to the limitations in this Section, and in Section 130.420(c) of these Policies, students may waive, or may be requested to waive, their right of access to confidential recommendations or evaluations regarding admission, application for employment, or the receipt of an honor or award.
Such waivers must be voluntary, and may not be required as a condition for admission to the University or the receipt of any other service or benefit from the University. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by the student. Students may waive their rights to inspect and review either individual documents or classes of documents (e.g., part or all of an admission or career placement file).
Students shall be notified upon request of the names of all individuals providing confidential letters and statements of recommendation to which they have waived their right of access.
Such recommendations retain their confidentiality only if they are used for the purpose for which they were originally intended. If used for other purposes, the waivers are void and the documents may be inspected by students.
No student may be required to sign a form saying that he or she has not waived access to any confidential recommendation.
Waivers may be revoked in writing with respect to records obtained or received subsequent to the revocation. Such revocations shall not affect a student's access to records obtained or received prior to such written notice of revocation.
