Guideline 8-1: Student Records and FERPA

The Texas Public Information Act does not require the release of information contained in educational records, except in conformance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA is a federal law that, generally speaking, gives students access to their educational records and prohibits the College from releasing a student's educational records to third parties without the consent of the student. Any inquiry about student information should be referred to the Registrar's Office or Human Resources.
