At Southeast Community College, your privacy is a priority. We recognize that your personal details shared via our website are a valuable trust. The information received from you via our website is solicited to provide appropriate services to you.
Southeast Community College does not sell or trade its lists of names and addresses to anyone for solicitation purposes. Third parties only have access to our lists when they provide us a service that will enhance our information or our service to you (e.g., to verify addresses against public directories).
The Southeast Community College website does not collect any personal information about you unless you provide that information voluntarily (e.g., by filling out a form, sending an email, or completing an online transaction).
Our use of information is in some cases governed by (and complies with) federal and Nebraska state privacy and Freedom of Information laws, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
SCC has developed policies and procedures in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. The rights accorded students shall apply to all students 18 years of age or older, or no longer dependent upon their parents; students in a postsecondary education program, regardless of their age; and parents of eligible dependent students.
Generally, students have the following rights: to inspect and review their educational records; to a hearing to challenge the contents of their records; and to receive copies of all or part of their educational records upon request.
All requests for student records and information must be in writing and directed to the campus Student Services Office. Questions relating to the release of records and information should be directed to the campus Student Services Office. SCC may provide directory lists of graduates to senior institutions that have an articulation agreement with SCC.
Directory information consisting of the items listed below may be released:
When available, the student's physical address, e-mail address and/ or telephone number will be released at the discretion of the Student Services Office.
*Use of Photographs/Video:
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 this information released, the student must submit a written request to the campus Student Services Office within 10 classroom 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 Student Services Office to become effective.
The College requires a student's Social Security number as a condition for enrollment. A student's Social Security number information constitutes an "educational record" under FERPA.
The College will be privileged to disclose that information only with the consent of the student or in those very limited circumstances when consent is not required by FERPA. Questions regarding FERPA should be directed to the campus Registration and Records Office.
SCC will not discriminate based on any student's pregnancy or parental status. The College's practices and procedures will conform to the requirements of 34 C.F.R. 106.40. Specifically, the College:
Administrative authority to implement and monitor these guidelines rests with the Vice President for Access/Equity/Diversity, in collaboration with the Vice President for Student Services, the Vice President for Instruction, and designated staff within those Divisions.
