Public Records Requests Tips

Please consider how you can narrow the scope of your request to expedite response time. The first 4 hours of work performed to respond to a PRR will be performed at no cost. After that, the College may charge up to $25 per hour. Also, requests for 1-4 precisely-defined documents will be produced quickly, within 3-9 days of receipt of the request, at no cost.
