The College may disclose the following categories of student information, designated as public information: the student’s name, address, major field of study, degree sought, expected date of completion of degree requirements and graduation, degrees and awards received, dates of attendance, full or part time enrollment status, the previous educational agency or institution attended, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of athletic team members, and other similar information and photographs.
Students may restrict the release of public information, except to school officials with legitimate educational interests. To do so, a student must make the request in writing to the Dean of Student Affairs. Once filed, this request becomes a permanent part of the student’s record until the student instructs the College, in writing, to have the request removed.
For purposes of compliance with FERPA, the College considers all students independent.
