Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Under the authority of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), students have the right to examine certain files, academic records and documents maintained by the College, which pertain to them. This law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
- The Registrar supervises records. Students may request a review of their records at the Registrar’s office. Such review will be allowed during regular business hours under appropriate supervision. A copy of the records may be obtained for a fee of $1 per page. When grades are included, the transcript fee applies.
- Students may request that the School amend its education records on the grounds that they are inaccurate, misleading, or in violation of their right to privacy.
- Challenging records for purposes of correcting or deleting any of the contents must be done in writing with the reason fully stated. Grades and course evaluations can only be challenged on the grounds that they are improperly recorded. Challenges must be made within 90 days of the student’s last date of attendance. The procedure is:
- The Director of Education and/or Campus Director will review the written challenge and meet with the student to allow the student a full and fair opportunity to present evidence relevant to the disputed issues. The School Director will then make the final recommendation.
- A copy of the challenge and/or written explanation of the contents will then be included as part of the student’s permanent record.
- “Directory Information” listing name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, program of study, dates of attendance and diploma/degree awarded may be provided to third parties by the school unless the request to omit such information is presented in writing within 10 days of enrollment.
- The following items are exempt from the Privacy Act (ACT):
- All Parents’ financial information and other financial need data.
- All Records about students made by teachers or administrators are maintained by and accessible only to the teachers or administrators.
- All Campus security records.
- All Employment records for school employees who are not also current students.
- All Records compiled or maintained by physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists or other recognized professionals and paraprofessionals acting or assisting in such capacities for treatment purposes and which are available only to persons providing the treatment.
- The College will not disclose academic, personal, or financial information to any entity or individual outside the college without first receiving a written release from the student, unless permitted by the ACT, with the exception of the accrediting commissions and government agencies as authorized by law.
