Student Data, Privacy, and Communications
All students are responsible for making certain Texas State has correct demographic data. A student's name will appear on official records as it is stated on the application for admission, unless a student has previously attended Texas State under a different name. Changes in name, local and/or permanent address, telephone number, marital status, etc. should be reported immediately to the Office of the University Registrar. Texas State is not responsible for loss of correspondence credits due to unreported name changes. Address changes can be submitted at http://www.registrar.txstate.edu/our-services.html.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
Most university offices use Texas State email as the official means of communication. Students are expected to set up and read their Texas State email frequently.
