Southeast Community College has developed policies and procedures in compliance with the Family Educational Rights
and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). FERPA is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The
law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA
rights transfer to the student when they reach the age of 18 or when they attend a school beyond the high school
You have the following rights as an SCC student:
All requests for student records, amendment of student records, information and/or questions relating to the release
of records and disclosure of PII must be in writing and directed to the campus Registration and Records Office.
FERPA rules allow disclosure of PII from a student education record without prior consent in certain cases. In
addition to the circumstances noted below, a disclosure may also be made when the disclosure meets other permissible
purposes as identified in 34 CFR 99.
Directory information consisting of the items listed below may be released without the student’s consent:
When available, your physical address, email address and/or telephone number may be released at the discretion of the
Registration and Records Office.
Photographers/videographers employed or contracted by SCC regularly take photographs/video of people, either
individually or in a group, to illustrate or describe various aspects of the College and campus life. These
photographs/video will be taken at public venues such as athletic events and concerts, or they may be taken in
organized campus photo/video shoots where the subjects will have given verbal consent to be photographed/videotaped.
Individuals who are photographed/videotaped while attending a public event or who verbally agree to participate in a
photo/video shoot will be understood to have authorized SCC to use their likeness in print and electronic materials
to promote the College. The College will retain the usage rights to the photographs/video in perpetuity.
To avoid having Directory Information released, students must submit a written request to the campus Registration and
Records Office within 10 classroom/business days, not including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, after initial
enrollment in the College. After the initial 10-day period, any new request for withholding of directory information
shall require a 10-classroom day (not including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays) written notice to the campus
Registration & Records Office to become effective.
If you believe the school has failed to comply with regulatory requirements and the complaint was not satisfactorily
resolved with the school, you have the right to file a complaint with the Department of Education.
For additional information regarding privacy rights, please see the Department of Education’s FERPA website.
The Student Right-to-Know Act, passed by Congress in 1990, requires institutions eligible for title IV funding, under the Higher Education act of 1965, to calculate completion or graduation rates of certificate or degree-seeking, full-time students entering that institution, and to disclose these rates to current and prospective students. These general disclosures include:

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus security and Crime Statistics Act, SCC publishes an Annual
Security Report (ASR) by October 1. This report includes statistics for the previous three (3) years concerning
reported crimes that occurred on campus, at certain off- campus buildings, and adjacent public property. The report
also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the
reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters.
A copy of this report is available online or upon request to any Campus Dean of Students.
In accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations, Southeast Community College annually notifies
students and employees of the standards of conduct that prohibit unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit
drugs and alcohol on its property. Additionally, SCC provides a description of the health risks associated with the
use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol, the applicable legal sanctions under local, state, or federal law,
the availability of applicable counseling, treatment, or rehabilitation or re-entry programs. SCC provides a clear
statement and description of the disciplinary sanctions the institution will impose on students and employees for
violation of College drug and alcohol free environment policies. See pages 7-11 of the Student Information section
of the College Catalog and online.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination based on sex*, which includes
sexual and relationship violence at any federally funded education program or activity. When the College receives a
report of sexual and relationship violence or discrimination, it will respond in a prompt and equitable manner,
consider and process every report based on facts and prohibit retaliation against anyone for raising complaints or
participating in a process related to Title IX.
