The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 establishes the rights of students with regard to educational records. The act makes provision for inspection, review and amendment of educational records by the students and requires, in most instances, prior consent from the student for disclosure of such records to third parties. The consent must be in writing, signed and dated by the student. The act applies to all persons formerly and currently enrolled at an educational institution. Access to educational records does not give permission to make changes to the student’s record. For more information, visit:http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html.
The College maintains two types of student education records: directory information and other student records. Directory information is considered public information and may be released by the College upon request, in accordance with existing law. Any student who does not wish directory information released must submit the appropriate documentation indicating such with the Registrar’s Office. Details about directory information may be found on the Registrar’s page of the Providence website.
The policy, found below, can be obtained through the Registrar’s Office or viewed in the Academic Handbook. Questions concerning the Act may be referred to the Office of the Registrar.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) was designed to transfer parental “rights” to their “adult” children when they enroll in college and, therein, protect the privacy of education records and provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Questions about FERPA should be referred to the Office of Registrar.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:
(1) The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access.A student should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The College official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the College official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
(2) The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.A student who wishes to ask the College to amend a record should write the College official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed.If the College decides not to amend the record as requested, the College will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
(3) The right to provide written consent before the College discloses personally identifiable information from the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.The College discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using College employees or officials (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the College.Upon request, the College also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
(4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:
Family Policy Compliance OfficeU.S. Department of Education400 Maryland Avenue, SWWashington, DC 20202-5901
Providence designates the following categories of student information as public or “directory information.” The College reserves the right to disclose such information at its discretion, unless requested not to in writing by the student. Requests are to be filed with the Registrar’s Office prior to September 15 each year, or February 1 for students entering the College in the spring semester.
Providence Christian College intends to uphold both the letter and spirit of FERPA, while at the same time upholding Biblical relationships and responsibilities of the family. As general practice, the College does not inform parents and other students of disciplinary action taken toward students. However, the College encourages students to communicate openly and honestly with their parents about disciplinary matters. Even though students are legally and morally responsible for their conduct, the College also recognizes the concern of parents for the welfare of their children. Thus, the College reserves the right to notify parents under the following conditions:

A special message from A. Michael Kiledjian, Vice President for Advancement, regarding the mission of Providence Christian College.
On behalf of the student-athletes, coaches, and athletic staff at Providence Christian College, we would like to invite you to join us on April 13th, 2020 as we host our annual Sea Beggar Scramble at La Cañada Country Club! All proceeds raised directly impact the student-athlete experience at Providence Christian College and your support truly makes a difference. If you joined us last year you know LCCC is a memorable playing experience and your involvement directly improved the student experience at Providence Christian. Among many other tangible results, the proceeds raised from last year’s tournament funded our NCCAA National Championship trips for Men’s Golf and Women’s Volleyball who traveled to Florida and Missouri respectively. Men’s Golf finished the season ranked 7th in the nation and Women’s Volleyball finished the year ranked 8th in the national poll. We’ve had a historic year of growth and sincerely thank you for the impact your generosity has had!
