The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 sets out requirements designed to protect the privacy of students. Specifically, the statute governs (1) Access to records and (2) the release of such records.

San Juan College has developed policies and procedures which comply fully with the intent of this legislation, thereby ensuring students access to their educational records and protecting such individuals' rights to privacy by limiting the transferability of their records without their consent.

The other major aspect of the Privacy Act of 1974 refers to the release of information concerning students. Other than directory information, the written consent of the student must be obtained before data can be released about that student. This applies to potential employers, schools where students may wish to transfer, reference checks, etc. Directory information, on the other hand, is information which will be released by the college unless a student notifies the Admissions and Records Office that such information in part or in whole is not to be released.

It is the student's responsibility to notify the Admissions and Records Office if he or she does not wish to have any or all of the above information released.

All inquiries regarding established policy and procedures relative to this act should be directed to Associate Vice President of Student Services. The Office of Admissions and Records is located in the Student Services building, located in the lower half of the Clock Tower Building or call (505) 566-3300. Additional information is available in the Academic Catalog.

Additional information is available for the privileged use of the members of the Vice President of Student Services' staff and the faculty of San Juan College. This information may not be released to any other parties without the written consent of the student and is considered confidential.

Clery Act

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act or Clery Act is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C. § 1092(f), with implementing regulations in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at 34 C.F.R. 668.46.
The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses. Compliance is monitored by the United States Department of Education. The law is named for Jeanne Clery, a 19-year-old Lehigh University freshman who was raped and murdered in her campus residence hall in 1986. The backlash against unreported crimes on numerous campuses across the country led to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. [2] The Clery Act, signed in 1990, was originally known as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act.
