The College has a policy of protecting the privacy of students in accordance with applicable law. Therefore, in compliance with the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the College will not release any information, to any third party, except in accordance with the provisions of the Act. Directory information may be disclosed without violating the FERPA unless a student signs a form to the contrary. The law permits postsecondary institutions to disclose information from a student’s educational records to his/her parents if the parents (or one of the parents) claim the student as a dependent for federal tax purposes. The College assumes that all students meet the FERPA criteria for dependent status. Unless a student signs a form to the contrary, educational records may be shared with parents without violating FERPA.
The complete policy and needed forms are below.
