Students’ Rights Regarding their Educational Records


Educational Records

“Educational records” means information or data recorded in any medium that is directly related to a student and that is maintained by the College or a person acting for the College. By law, medical records, college public safety records, financial records of parents, personal notes of teachers or administrators which are not available to any third party, and directory information have been excluded from educational records.

Details pertaining to the location and content of educational records; the names of persons having access to and responsibility for the maintenance of such records; and the policies and procedures related to record access, review and challenge, are available in the Student Services Office (Bldg. 1, Room 300)

Directory Information

“Directory information” refers to a student’s name, e-mail address, picture, major field of study, dates of attendance, full or part-time status, awards and degrees received, most recent previous educational agency attended, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and weight and height of members of athletic teams. This information may be made public by the College for all but those students who indicate to the Office of Student Services within the first three weeks of classes that any or all of the information so designated should not be released without their prior consent.

IF YOU WISH TO RESTRICT THE RELEASE OF ANY OR ALL DIRECTORY INFORMATION THAT PERTAINS TO YOU, YOU MUST NOTIFY THE OFFICE OF STUDENT SERVICES WITHIN THE FIRST THREE WEEKS OF CLASSES EACH SEMESTER.
