Records access

As part of the State University of New York, SUNY Oswego makes certain records available to the public in accordance with New York's Freedom of Information Law (Public Officers Law Article 6 §§ 84-90).

Student records are generally private and accessible to the individual student and to college employees whose duties require access. Students should contact the office that holds their records in order to request copies.

To access public records under Freedom of Information Law, requests should be directed to the college's records access officer by sending a letter or email message to: Wayne Westervelt, Records Access Officer, 210 Culkin Hall, SUNY Oswego, Oswego, NY 13126.

FOI requests should include specific information about the records being sought, such as dates, titles or other information that will help locate them.

Within five business days of receipt of a request, the college will respond. The response may be a decision granting or denying the request or, at minimum, an acknowledgement of receiving the request and an approximate date when the request will be granted or denied. Any request that is denied may be appealed to the FOIL Appeals Office in SUNY's System Administration; the appeals process will be described in the college's response.
