to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The A
University official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are
not maintained by the University official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student ofthe correct official to whom the request
should be addressed.
(2) The right to request the amendment ofthe student’s education records that the student believes is inaccurate. Students may ask the University to amend a
record that they believe is inaccurate. They should write the University official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part ofthe record they want
changed, and specify why it is inaccurate. lf the University decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will notify the student
ofthe decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing Q

in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.
Upon request, the University discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. [Note:
FERPA requires an institution to make a reasonable attempt to notify the student ofthe records request unless the institution states in its annual notification

University of Kentucky
2003-2004 , ‘
Section 103 of the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542) as amended by the Higher Education i
Technical Amendments of 1991 (Public Law 102-26) requires public disclosure of relevant graduation rate infomation for students enrolled in

Kentucky’s official disclosure statement in accordance with the requirements of P.L. 101-542 Section 103 for the 2003-2004 academic year. .
Graduation Rate of Entering Freshmen
The graduation rate for all students entering the University of Kentucky as first-time freshmen during the 1996-97 academic year* was 57.7 percent. This
graduation rate represents the percentage of students entering the University of Kentucky as first-time (i.e., new) full-time degree-seeking freshmen during the ‘
1996 Summer and Fall tems who subsequently were awarded baccalaureate degrees by the University of Kentucky within six calendaryears (i.e., through August .
2002). This rate was calculated under definitions and procedures established by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and reported to the NCAA · 
on the Univcrsity`s 2002 Graduation Rate Disclosure Fom in March 2003.
Final regulations and guidelines for the calculation, reporting, and disclosure of graduation rate infomation required under the Student Right-to-Know Act have
not yet been issued by the Department of Education. Definitions ofthe entering student cohort in the Department of Education’s proposed regulations (Federal ~
Register. July 10. 1992) and the NCAA Graduation Rate Disclosure Fom differ slightly. However, the University has detemined that the graduation rate
infomation in the annual NCAA report is substantially comparable to the infomation required under the Student Right-to-Know Act, and is reporting that ‘ .
infomation at this time pending release of final federal regulations.
March 2003 _ ·
* The intomiartion to he disclosed by July l ofeach year is "the graduation rate for the most recent cohort ofentering students that all have had an opportunity to complete or graduate ·
from their respective programs" in the specified completion period (which for the University ofKentucky is six years). The most recent entering cohort meeting this requirement
