FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT
Privacy of Student Education Records –
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 gives college students the right to view educational records (records, files, documents, and other materials which contain information directly related to the student and maintained by the college) maintained in the Academic Office, Admissions Office, Financial Aid Office, Academic Department Offices, and the Student Development Office (including Career Services and the Health Center).

Educational records do not include: records of instructional or administrative personnel which are personal in nature and are not accessible to any other person; records maintained by physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, or other recognized professional or para-professionals; or financial records of parents. Students who wish to view their files should indicate that they wish to do so to the College official responsible for maintaining the particular file. An appointment will be made for the student to view the file within a reasonable amount of time. Parents of dependent students (as defined by the Internal Revenue Service) have the same right of access to the records of their dependents.

In some situations, Central Christian College of Kansas may determine that it is necessary to disclose non-directory information to appropriate parties in order to address a disaster or other health or safety emergency. FERPA permits school officials to disclose, without consent, education records, or personally identifiable information from education records, to appropriate parties in connection with an emergency, if knowledge of that information is necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals. This exception to FERPA’s general consent requirement is temporally limited to the period of the emergency and generally does not allow for a blanket release of personally identifiable information from the student’s education records.

Under this health or safety emergency provision, Central is responsible for making a determination whether to make a disclosure of personally identifiable information on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the totality of the circumstances pertaining to a threat to the health or safety of the student or others. If the school determines that there is an articulable and significant threat to the health or safety of the student or other individuals and that a party needs personally identifiable information from education records to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals, it may disclose that information to such appropriate party without consent.  If such a disclosure is made without the students consent, Central will record in the student’s education records the articulable and significant threat that formed the basis for the disclosure and the parties to whom information was disclosed.

The Privacy Act permits the College to release, without student consent, directory information. Directory information at Central Christian College includes a student’s name, address, telephone number, major field of study, date and place of birth, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent educational agency or institution attended.

Students who do not want directory information released must submit a request in writing to the Student Development Office. The College will communicate academic and behavioral information to parents or guardians for all students under 21 years of age unless a student has declared independent status and for all students 21 years of age and over who are claimed as a dependent for federal tax purposes.

Information on the types of educational records maintained by Central Christian College, officials responsible for maintaining records, persons who have access to such records, purposes for which these persons have access to records, and procedures for correcting inaccurate records is available through the Office of the Registrar.
