FERPA and Student Privacy:

The Family Education Right to Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal mandate designed to protect the privacy of students’ records. FERPA includes academic records, financial aid records, attendance records and any other personally identifiable information collected by the college that, if shared, could violate the privacy rights of students and former students. Click on these links to view Hartnell College's Board Policy 5040 and Administrative Procedure 5040 regarding Student Education Records and Directory Information.  For more information please visit: http://www.hartnell.edu/family-educational-rights-and-privacy-act-ferpa

FERPA permits release of “directory information” without authorization unless the student submits an Authorization for Release of Student Records form to opt out of being included in directory information.   The deadline for submission of opting out is Thursday, October 12, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. to the Admissions and Records Office.
