Feds: UMass Dartmouth Student Records Cannot Be Released

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth says federal education officials have found that it cannot publicly release records of students related to the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.
 
    Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a student at UMass-Dartmouth, and three classmates are accused of removing a laptop and backpack from his dormitory room before the FBI searched it. Two of them weren’t enrolled at the time. 
 
    The university announced Wednesday the Education Department has said it cannot release the records without a student’s consent because of privacy laws. University Chancellor Divina Grossman had sought a clarification last week.
 
    UMass Dartmouth said it has provided all information requested to law enforcement officials and will continue to work closely with investigators. The university said it will “continue to be transparent with the public” while complying with the law.
