Public Information Requests

How to Request Public Information

While there is no strict form required to request public information, there are certain guidelines that must be met.

  1. Your request must be in writing. Only written requests trigger the College's obligation under the Public Information Act.
  2. Your request should be for documents or other information that is already in existence. The College is not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply future information. The College is not required to create a document, report, or other information not in existence under the Public Information Act.
  3. Requests should be addressed to the Public Information Coordinator. Requests made by facsimile or electronic mail must be addressed to the Public Information Coordinator in order to trigger an obligation under the Public Information Act.
