College Record 2020-2021

Release of Academic Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 protects the privacy of educational records, establishes the right of students to inspect and review their educational records, and provides guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA), Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, 230 Independence Avenue, S. W., Washington, DC 20201, concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act.

Keuka College will not disclose personally identifiable information from the educational records of a student without the prior written consent of the student, except as permitted by the Act and specified in the College’s statement of policy.

The College designates the following as Directory information and will release it without consent: name; address; telephone number; major field of study; dates of attendance; current enrollment status (full-time/part-time); class standing; receipt or non-receipt of a degree; academic awards received.

Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred to the Registrar’s Office. Keuka College will not release academic information to persons of any relation to matriculated students unless the student has filled out a FERPA waiver form and allowed the release of that information to those designated persons. The College reserves the right to contact a student’s parents or guardians when, in the opinion of the College, the notification is necessary to protect the well-being of the student or others.

Transcripts are released only after a student makes a request through the National Student Clearinghouse. Transcripts are not released until all debts to Keuka College are paid.
