Open Records Request

Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) 61.870 and the Open Records Act (ORA) define a public record as "all books, papers, maps, photographs, cards, tapes, discs, diskettes, recordings, software, or other documentation regardless of physical form or characteristics, which are prepared, owned, used, in the possession of or retained by a public agency."

KRS 61.878 specifically itemizes a number of exclusions to which public records may be disclosed. Requested records will be provided in accordance with these exclusions and in accordance with the opinions of the Kentucky Attorney General. State law requires an agency response to the requestor within 72 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays.)

Copies of university information covered by the Open Records Act may be obtained by a written request to:
