Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

To comply with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the following policies and procedures have been established. This policy also serves as the annual notification of students rights under FERPA, which is published annually in the College Catalog. It is the responsibility of the Office of Student Services to protect the privacy of student educational records. FERPA affords students the right to file a written complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. Written complaints should be sent to the Family Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605.
