FERPA

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Access to Student Information

Students rights concerning access to educational records are outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, as amended. These rights include:

  • providing students with the opportunity to inspect their edu­cational records (Contact the Records office at 402-457-2353 for an appointment);
  • providing students with the opportunity to challenge through a hearing the content of their educational records if it is believed that they contain information that is inaccurate or misleading (Contact the Records office at 402-457-2353 for an appointment); and
  • limiting disclosure of information from the students’ records to those who have students’ written consent or to officials specifically permitted within the law, such as College officials and—under certain conditions—local, state and federal officials.

Students who wish to grant parental, spouse, or 3rd party access to their educational records may do so by submitting an Authorization to Release Student Information Form to the Records Office.

For questions regarding FERPA, contact the Records office at 402-457-2353 or visit any Student Services.

Students may file a complaint with the Department of Education if they believe that their rights under the law have been violated and if efforts to resolve the situation through MCC appeal channels have proven unsatisfactory.
