Family Education Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) sets limits on the disclosure of personally identifiable information from school records and defines the rights of the student to review the records and request a change to the records. In compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (34 CFR Part 99) the College may release the following as directory information without student consent:

  • Name
  • Program of study
  • Dates of attendance
  • Certificate/diploma/degree awarded
  • Honors received
  • Activities participation and photo for publicity

Students or parents of minor students requesting that such information be withheld must complete the appropriate form requesting specifically which directory information should be suppressed. This form may be obtained from the Student Services office and will be effective as of the date it is signed and received by Student Services. Other specific information not listed above may be released provided a signed consent form is in the student’s file. In accordance with FERPA regulation 34 CFR Part 99, Subpart D, certain governmental institutions may have access to student records without prior consent for disclosure. Students have the right to inspect their education records for accuracy by requesting such access in person in the Student Services office
