In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, Wilson Community College releases no personally identifiable information about students without the expressed written consent of the student, except where specifically prescribed by law. Exceptions to this practice are those types of information defined as “directory information” which includes: student’s name, dates of attendance, enrollment status and curriculum, academic honors, and degrees, diplomas, or certificates awarded. Student addresses and phone numbers are released to the US military as requested. Students wishing to block the release of directory information may do so by written request to the College Registrar.
FERPA guarantees a student’s right of access to their own educational records and restricts/limits the rights of others. Certain school officials and faculty may have access to non-directory information without written consent on a strictly need-to-know basis if they have a legitimate educational interest.
Detailed information on FERPA can be found in the College Catalog or by visiting the Department of Education’s Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) page. To provide consent for the release of information please submit the FERPA Release Form to Student Development in F-100.
