Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
Withholding Information From the Public
The college abides by the provisions of the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
This act ensures a wide range of rights, including, but not limited to:
information about students' records that the College maintains, who maintains them, who has access to them, and for what purposes access is granted.
The act also permits the college to release "directory information" without a student's consent.
Directory information consists of the full name of the student as it appears on the official record; a student's dates of attendance; and a student's degree and honors and the dates they were awarded.
In addition, the act guarantees students' access to their records and allows students to restrict such access to others.
