Release of academic information for deceased students
In the event of a student’s passing, The University of Manitoba considers the deceased student’s next of kin to be the owner of the record.
The following requirements protect the confidentiality of academic information upon the death of the student or alumnus of the university.
The Registrar's Office will release the transcript and other academic records of the deceased student and reserves the right to deny the request in whole or to release only part of the academic records that are requested.
The closest living next-of-kin, executor, or holder of power of attorney for the deceased may submit the following forms:
- Birth certificate of the requestor
- Death certificate of former student or alumnus
- Obituary notice
If there is no living next-of-kin, academic records may be requested by the executor of the estate or holder of power of attorney for the deceased.
