Ownership of Applicant Records
All license agreements between HigherEdDecisions and its client institutions provide that applicant records and search process records are construed as the exclusive property of the college,
university, or institution to which application materials are submitted through Consensus®.
Confidentiality of Applicant Records
HigherEdDecisions will not release applicant records to any 3rd party without the prior written authorization
of client institution or a court order signed by a judge of competent jurisdiction (provided that the client
institution shall first have opportunity to challenge the validity or jurisdiction of any such purported court order).
Consensus® neither solicits nor stores any Federally protected
personal identifying information. The confidentiality of applicant records submitted through
Consensus® is governed by the policies of the client institution. Unless you are notified
to the contrary by the institution to which you are submitting application materials, all
applicant records are construed as confidential personnel documents, not subject to public
release without the prior written authorization of the Applicant – unless and until you accept
an invitation for a campus-based interview.
The preemployment declaration you will be asked to execute in
the on-line application process provides your authorization to disclose your status as an
applicant and to release copies of your application materials to the public in the event
you are selected for a campus-based interview.
If you have questions regarding the confidentiality provisions
pertaining to your candidacy, please contact the System Administrator of the college,
university, or institution listed in the advertisement to which you are responding.
