Freedom of Information Law (FOIL)

As a state agency, the SUNY Oneonta is subject to the Freedom of Information Law (http://www.dos.state.ny.us/coog/foil2.html).

A person, outside agency or group may request information from the SUNY Oneonta by writing the Records Access Officer, Colleen Brannan, President's Office. The request must reasonably describe the record or records that are being requested. The request shall be as specific as possible, describing as appropriate, dates, titles, files, and designations.  

Within five business days of the receipt of the written request, the College will respond in writing as to the approximate date the record or material will be granted or denied. Fees may be charged for duplication, clerical assistance, or reproduction.

Denial of access will be in writing, stating the reason. Any person, group, or agency who feels that a request has been denied unfairly may appeal within 30 days. Copies of all relevant correspondence will be sent to the State office, and Article 78 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules will be followed.
