Student Conduct For Parents & Guardians

As a College, we understand that parents, families, and guardians have a vested interest in their child's well-being at the institution, regardless of their child's age. Unfortunately, federal law prohibits the College from sharing information regarding a student to parents, family members, guardians, etc., without written permission from the student.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records, which also include any conduct records that the student may have with the Conduct Office.

There are a few exceptions to this law, though. If a student under the age of 21 is involved in a drug or alcohol-related incident, parents, family members, or guardians will be notified by the Conduct Office via a letter.

A student may choose to waive their FERPA rights and their conduct status to be shared with specific individuals by filling out a FERPA release.
