Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
All student records of Mt. San Jacinto College are maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. A copy of the complete text of this act is available in the college library (see “Family Educational and Privacy Rights” in Shepherd’s Acts and Cases by Popular Names). The two basic elements of the act are the student’s right to review and challenge their record and the conditions under which information in the record can be released to outside parties.
Further information about the federal regulation may be found at FERPA.
Students will be notified of their Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) rights annually by publication in the college catalog.
