Privacy and Access to Student Records
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), students have the right to:
- Examine and review their educational records. Requests to review records should be made in writing and will be responded to within five business days.
- Challenge the contents of their records if they believe the information is inaccurate, misleading, or violates their right to privacy.
- Limit the disclosure of information from their records.
Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College does not release information from a student’s educational record without prior written consent by the student except for information designated as “directory information” which, under FERPA, may be disclosed by the College at its discretion. Directory information includes: name, address, telephone number, date of birth, enrollment status, class, and degrees and awards conferred. Currently enrolled students may request that all or part of the directory information not be disclosed by submitting written notification at the beginning of the academic year. The restriction remains in effect for one year.
