The Family Education Rights and Privacy of 1974 per­ mits enrolled university students access to certain creden­ tials in their files. Biola University has long permitted ac­ cess for the student to his previous educational records such as high school transcripts and college transcripts (if a transfer), his SAT or ACT scores and his educational record at Biola University. Because of the importance of preserving the confiden­ tiality of letters of recommendation the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act permits an educational institution to suggest an applicant may waive his right to access to let­ ters of recommendation. Signing such waiver is not re­ quired as a condition for admission, receipt of financial aid form or receipt of any other services or benefits from Biola University. In order that Biola University may have valid recom­ mendations it is suggested that the applicant consider waiving his right to see such letters of recommendation. Please be assured that letters of recommendation (along with transcripts, SAT/ACT scores, and your own applica­ tion) are used solely to determine an applicant's qualifica­ tion for admission. Biola University will furnish (upon the applicant's request) the names of all individuals supplying references. However, the applicant usually knows the iden­ tity of those to whom he gives the reference forms. Signing the waiver statement on the reference form is all that is necessary on your part.
