An e-mail address is required in order to access your request.

Requests for student information should be tagged with "Office of University Registrar" using the "Departments" dropdown located below the request box



Requestors will receive an e-mail indicating their request has been "published" by UNC-Chapel Hill and is now publicly available.

All requests will be reviewed and possibly edited or rejected:

  • Requests may be edited to redact sensitive and/or protected information

  • Visit for information on fees which may be charged to cover the cost of producing public records
  • For employee information the University may provide under the State (North Carolina) Human Resources Act, contact the Office of Human Resources:

We ask requestors to consider their request and be as specific as possible about the records they seek.

A search request must at minimum identify individual names or departments. The Public Records Office is unable to fulfill University-wide requests for "all e-mails" or "all documents" from the over 120,000 e-mail addresses maintained for students, faculty, and staff.
