The Family Educational Rights and Privacy
In compliance with the Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) as Amended, Durham Technical
Community College may release “directory information”
from student educational records without the student’s written
consent. Directory information at Durham Tech includes the student’s
name; program of study; dates of enrollment; credit hours earned;
degrees, diplomas, or certificates awarded; release of academic
recognition to newspapers; and participation in officially recognized
activities. Generally, students’ addresses, phone numbers,
and class schedules are not released to non-college officials.
An exception to this practice is the release of students’
addresses and phone numbers when requested by recruiters for the
military services as required by Title IV of the Higher Education
Directory information may be published or made available without
the student’s consent. However, any student who prefers
that such information not be released may request this by writing
to the associate dean of Admissions, Registration, and Financial
Aid. This written request must be made during the first two weeks
of the student’s initial enrollment and is valid for one
Durham Technical Community College complies with the directives
of the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 as an amendment to FERPA when appropriate
identification and documentation are presented to the executive dean, Student Development and Support.
Students may ask to see their education records in accordance
with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Students may
challenge the contents of the records by making a written request
to the executive dean, Student Development and Support.
Students may fill out a FERPA release of information form online.
