Student Records Privacy Rights
In accordance with National Park Community College Board Policy Number 6.100:
The Board of Trustees supports and complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
Faculty and administrative staff members should be aware that all student records are private and that information concerning student educational records may not be given out without written permission of the student. The Registrar or Vice President for Student Services should be contacted for further information.
A student's academic record is confidential and will not be released to unauthorized persons without written approval from the student. The following items are considered public information and may be made available upon inquiry unless the student requests nondisclosure for the enrollment period: name, address, e-mail address, phone number, place and date of birth, citizenship status, number of academic hours completed, academic major, full-time or part-time status, academic and nonacademic honors, other academic institutions attended, degree obtained and date conferred, campus activities, leadership positions, and dates of attendance.
NPCC complies fully with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 which was designated to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearing. Students also have the right to file complaints with The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act office concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act.
Questions concerning FERPA may be directed to the Registrar's Office.
