Access To Records

Access To Records
Family Educational Rights And Privacy Act (FERPA):

The College complies with The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).  This act affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records.  All Admissions and academic records of enrolled students are stored in the Office of the Registrar.  Financial Aid records are stored in the Office of Financial Aid. Students who may wish to review their records must request to do so in writing; an email may not be used for this request. The student’s current contact information must be provided in the written request. Once the written request is received by the Office of the Registrar, access to the student’s record will be granted within 45 days.

Students have the right to request an amendment to their student records. If the request is denied, a hearing may be requested. More information regarding a student’s FERPA rights is available in the Office of the Registrar.

In order to ensure that the College is protecting each student’s right to privacy, any and all information regarding a student’s academic life at the College including course and project grades, course schedule, attendance, and classroom participation will not be released to anyone other than the student without the student’s direct permission.  When permission is granted, it will only apply to the specific request at hand, it will not be accepted as blanket permission. Parents or guardians will not have access to student records without written permission of the student. Please see the Registrar with any questions or considerations.

Billing, payment and financial information may be released to a parent or third party once a release form has been signed by the student in the Business Office.
