Maryland's Public Information Act (MPIA) Requests
To review or obtain copies of Salisbury University university records, you must make a written request under Maryland’s Public Information Act (MPIA), which gives the public the right to review and obtain copies of certain public records. The MPIA is found in the General Provisions Article, §§4-101 through 4-601, of the Annotated Code of Maryland. You can also find information regarding the MPIA on the Maryland Attorney General’s Office webpage. Requests can be received only when the University is open.
MPIA §4-206 permits the University to charge for the search, preparation and reproduction of a public record to be made available for inspection, excluding the first two hours of work. Additionally, copies of the records will be provided upon payment of an additional fee of $0.25 per page.
Persons who disagree with any response to the MPIA request, may seek review of the decision in accordance with the MPIA §4-362.
