Access to information requests and COVID-19
In response to COVID-19, NSCAD University has transitioned to virtual operations. We appreciate your support and understanding at this time.
NSCAD University is committed to protecting the privacy of students, staff, faculty, alumni, and visitors. As a public body, NSCAD University is governed by the Nova Scotia Freedom of Information Protection of Privacy (FOIPOP) Act, which provides access to most records under the control of the university while protecting the privacy of individuals.
How to submit a FOIPOP access request
As recommended by the Nova Scotia Information and Privacy Commissioner, applications for access to a record may now be submitted electronically to Anne Masterson, Academic Affairs Officer and FOIPOP Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please continue to mail in the mandatory $5 application fee.
An applicant may request access not only to records containing their own personal information, but may also request access to general records of the university. The FOIPOP Act requires NSCAD University to release requested records, subject to limited exceptions.
