Confidentiality of Records

Clark College has adopted procedures in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as amended, and maintains confidentiality of student records. College employees are trained to comply with information release guidelines.

With few exceptions, no one will have access to student records without the written consent of the student. Clark College will not release a student's record to a parent/ guardian without the student's written request. This policy is in effect regardless of the student's age or financial dependency upon the parent or guardian.

The College may release student directory information without student consent. Directory information includes student name, student address, student email, date of birth, major field of study, quarters of attendance, degrees and awards received, participation in activities and sports, and weight and height of members of athletic teams.

The College will assign all students a Student Identification Number (SID). Students are required to use their assigned SID to access their records, register for classes, pay tuition, etc.
