Privacy of Student Records

The College makes every attempt to enforce the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974.

This regulation, as it applies to institutions of higher learning, ensures that students have access to certain records that pertain to them. It prohibits others, except faculty members or administrators who have “a need to know” and parents who claim their student as a dependent for tax purposes, from access to the student’s records, unless the student signs a waiver.
