SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY POLICY
The following persons or groups are authorized access to official records without student consent:

  1. College faculty members and other College officials with legitimate educational interests.
  2. College officials of other institutions in which the student seeks or intends to enroll.
  3. Authorized representatives of federal, state, or local government.
  4. Accrediting organization in order to carry out their accrediting functions.
  5. The privacy rights of an individual expire with that individual’s death. Accordingly, the disposition of records held by the College and pertaining to a deceased individual is not a FERPA issue but a matter of institutional policy. The College requires that individual seeking records on a deceased student must complete the release form, submit an official death certificate, and submit documentation proving the requester is either a parent or guardian of the deceased student or an executor/executrix of the deceased student’s estate.

RECORDS OF REQUEST
A student must submit a written request to the appropriate department and specify the records to be released, the purpose of the disclosure, and the party and address to which information is to be released. All requests must have the student’s signature.

The College maintains records of request of personally identifiable information. The records of requests include the names and addresses of the person who requested the information and their legitimate interest in the information. The records of disclosures and request for disclosures are considered part of students’ academic records; therefore, records of disclosures and request for disclosures follow the student record retention policy.

STUDENT RECORD RETENTION
Each student transcript is a permanent document of the College and will be maintained indefinitely. All other student records are maintained in accordance with the Records and Retention and Disposal Policy and Schedule.
