System of Record Notices (SORNs)

A system of records (SOR) is a group of records, whatever the storage media (paper, electronic, etc.), under the control of a DoD Component from which personal information about an individual is retrieved by the name of the individual, or by some other identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned, that is unique to the individual.

The DoD publishes in the Federal Register a system of records notice (SORN) of all SORs being maintained on individuals who are citizens of the United States or aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence. The notice also includes the last Federal Register publication date.

Individuals are encouraged to periodically review the personal information being maintained about them by the DoD Components and to avail themselves of the procedures established by DoD 5400.11-R and other Regulations to update their records. If you would like to view or amend a record, please contact the USU Privacy Office.
