Student Rights Related to Records
Admissions records, grade reports, financial aid records, and reports of disciplinary action are consistent with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Students are ensured the right to view the information in their own files as outlined in the law and to dispute any items which are believed not to be appropriate for the file. Copies of most items may be obtained by the student, except copies of documents provided by a third party, such as high school and other college transcripts and immunization records. A fee is assessed to cover costs.
Directory Information is defined as the following items: a student's name, address, telephone listing, e-mail address, date and place of birth, major field of student, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended. Consistent with the law, the College may release all or part of the directory information to any individual or agency requesting information, unless the student has specifically requested in writing that this information not be released. Such requests must be in writing and submitted to the Records Office no later than the end of the first full week of classes each semester.
