Open Records - Texas Public Information Act

The Texas Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552) gives you the right to access government records; the public information officer may not ask you why you want them. All government information is presumed to be available to the public, although certain exceptions may apply. Governmental bodies shall release requested information as promptly as possible, unless the information is exempt from disclosure under the Public Information Act.

Student transcripts cannot be released through the Public Information Office.
You must instead contact UTSA's Registrar Office to obtain this information.


Documents for inclusion with a student admissions application must be submitted directly to UTSA's Admissions Office (Fax No. 210-458-7857) - not to the Public Information Office.
