Acceptable Use of Portal Data

As an enterprise involved in the delivery of academic programs, Wilmington College necessarily must gather confidential information about students, employees, and potential employees. Various offices of the College need details about addresses, telephone numbers, Social Security numbers, family background and academic and/or employment history in order to make decisions about administration, financial aid, academic placement and progress, and personnel matters. It is the responsibility of all students and employees of the College to provide up-to-date and accurate information as requested. It is the obligation of the College and its employees to respect each individual's privacy rights by restricting access to confidential information stored in electronic and conventional files as far as reasonably practicable. Only those persons who have a business need to know confidential information have the right of access to it, and care should be taken to avoid unnecessary disclosure. Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action.
