Academic Records Privacy Rights

Academic Records Privacy Rights

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 non-disclosure for the enrollment period: name, address, phone number, place and date of birth, academic major, full or part-time status, academic and non-academic honors, other academic institutions attended, degree obtained and date conferred, campus activities, leadership positions, and dates of attendance and other similar information.

Requests for non-disclosure are effective only for the enrollment period in which the request is submitted.

Students must file a new request at the beginning of each enrollment period for which non-disclosure is desired.

EACC complies fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 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 hearings.

Students also have the right to file complaints with The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) office concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act. Questions concerning FERPA may be directed to the Office of Admission and Records.
