Maryland's Public Information Act

Requests

To review or obtain copies of Salisbury University records, you must make a written request under Maryland’s Public Information Act (PIA). The Maryland PIA — which gives the public the right to review and obtain copies of certain public records — 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 PIA on the Maryland Attorney General’s Office webpage. Requests can be received only when the University is open.

The PIA §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. 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 a PIA request, may seek review of the decision in accordance with the PIA §4-362.
