Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. For more information on specific provisions of the Act, refer to the "Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities" section in the Student Handbook.
The college has designated the following student information as public or Directory Information. Such information may be disclosed by the college for any purpose.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under FERPA. To withhold disclosure, written notification must be received by the Student Records office within the first three weeks of the semester in which the withholding of Directory Information is to take effect. Request forms are available in the Student Records office.
- dates/semesters of attendance
- major field of study
- degrees and awards received
- previous institution(s) attended
- participation in officially recognized sports and activities

The college assumes that failure on the part of any student to specifically request the withholding of categories of Directory Information indicates approval for disclosure.
