The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth is asking federal education officials if it can legally release records of four students related to the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.

Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who is recovering in a prison hospital after being wounded in a shootout with police, was a student at UMass-Dartmouth.  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 in school at the time.

University Chancellor Divina Grossman said Friday she’s asking the Education Department if an exception can be made to privacy laws. She said the university has “provided every document and resource necessary” to the FBI and law enforcement.

Grossman said UMass Dartmouth is also reviewing its student financial and academic requirements, and public safety and international policies.  (Associated Press)
