Policy Regarding Student ID Numbers

To all instructors and teaching assistants (via TA coordinators)

Student ID numbers are confidential. Please do not post or make public in any way lists containing student ID numbers in either real or virtual space.

Grades are confidential information. Grades should not be posted in association with either student names or student ID numbers.

Three Permitted Methods for Distributing Grades to Students

Information provided by Maureen B. Morley, Executive Director, Academic Senate, Berkeley Division (2/9/99):

  1. Postcards or stamped envelopes provided by the students (the preferred method)

  2. Written authorization to post grades from each student whose grade you post

  3. Post grades using ONLY the last four digits of the Student ID numbers, AND post the information in a random order (not alphabetical by Student Name or ordered by Student ID Number)
