Educational Institutions are required to annually notify enrolled students of their rights under the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended. This website fulfills this obligation and serves as the annual FERPA notification to students at Modesto Junior College.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who enters a postsecondary institution at any age. Student education records are those records that contain personally identifiable information (PII).
Education records, according to FERPA, are defined as student records maintained by an education agency or institution or by a party acting for the agency or institution. Examples of student records include academic transcripts, financial aid awards and student judicial files.
Educational records DO NOT include:
FERPA allows institutions to identify certain types of information called "directory information" that may be disclosed without student consent at the College's discretion. Modesto Junior College has designated the following information as directory information and will release this information upon request:
According to FERPA, a student can request that the institution not release any directory information about him/her. Modesto Junior College students initially give or withhold consent via the admissions application. Students may change their decision by filing a Notice to Deny Disclosure form with the Enrollment Services Office. Request for non-disclosure will be honored by the college until removed by the student.
With several exceptions provided by FERPA, Modesto Junior College cannot release personally identifiable non-directory information in an education record without prior written consent from the student unless it is to state, local, and federal government authorities who need the information in performance of their duties.
Some examples of non-directory information include:
The student's prior written consent is not required to disclose non-directory information under the following circumstances:
FERPA grants students the right to inspect and review their education records within 45 days after the day a request for access is submitted. A student should submit a written request to the Director of Admissions and Records that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The Director of Admissions and Records will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the education records are not maintained by the Admissions and Records Office, the Director shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
Modesto Junior College students have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the District to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
