Records/Transcripts

Records

A student has a right to inspect and review his/her permanent student records. Such records may include identifying data, academic work completed, grades, achievement test scores, aptitude test scores, health data, teacher or counselor ratings and observations, and verified reports of serious or recurrent behavior.

A student who desires to inspect his/her records may do so by contacting the Registrar who will schedule such inspection. The student may challenge the accuracy of the records and the College will grant a hearing. Such a challenge should be directed to the Dean of Student Development.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (the "Buckley Amendment"), other persons will not be permitted access to such information except for school officials and teachers, parents of dependent students, representatives of the Comptroller General, state agencies needing information for audit, or persons holding a court order or subpoena. Each student file includes documentation regarding who accessed the file, when, and why.

To all other persons, the College may release only directory-type information indicating if the student is currently enrolled, the program in which enrolled, current name, address, and phone numbers. If a student does not desire the release of this information, the Student Development Office should be notified within 10 days of each year's initial enrollment.

Record retention and disposal will follow the guidelines as stated in the North Carolina College System Record and Retention Manual.
