Public Records Requests

Public records requests for the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (“THEC”) must be made to the Public Records Request Coordinator (”PRRC”) in order to ensure requests are fulfilled in a timely manner.

THEC does not require requests for in-person inspection only (no copies provided) to be made in writing.  The PRRC may request a mailing or email address from the requestor for providing any written communication required under the Tennessee Public Records Act.

Requests for in-person inspection may be made: 

  1. orally at 404 James Robertson Parkway, Suite 1900, Nashville, TN 37243,
  2. by phone at 615-741-3605,
  3. in writing using the Public Records Request form, or
  4. by email at THEC.TSAC.PublicRecords@tn.gov

Requests for copies, or requests for inspection and copies, must be made in writing using the Public Records Request form, submitted:

  1. by mail or in person at 404 James Robertson Parkway, Suite 1900, Nashville, TN 37243, or
  2. by email at THEC.TSAC.PublicRecords@tn.gov

Proof of Tennessee citizenship by presentation of a valid Tennessee driver’s license (or alternative acceptable form of ID) is required as a condition to inspect or receive copies of THEC public records.

Public notices, archived videos of THEC meetings, meeting documents, and other frequently requested records and publications are posted and readily available online at www.tn.gov/thec/
