The University of Guelph endeavors to maintain the privacy of students’ information. All students should be aware that staff and faculty will share information regarding a student in order to meet the University’s administrative and academic needs from time to time. Students who have not yet reached the age of majority are subject to the same policies, procedures, and regulations.

A Message for Parents and Guardians

Staff and faculty of the University of Guelph are bound by Provincial legislation that prevents them from discussing a student’s confidential information (including, but not limited to, information pertaining to scheduling, finances, attendance, and academic achievement) with anyone other than the student. We understand the difficulties this may result in, but ask that parents keep these restrictions in mind when assisting their children with navigation through various administrative processes. For the University of Guelph’s official statement with regard to student confidentiality, please visit the Student Confidentiality and Release of Student Information for more information.
