Access to Student Records
All currently enrolled or former students have the right of access to any records relating to them and maintained by the college. Students may inspect and review records relating to them and maintained by the college. Students may inspect and review records during regular business hours in the Admissions and Records Office. Requests for access to records will be granted no later than five (5) working days following date of request. Qualified personnel will be present to interpret records for students.
PRIVACY ACT – All student records at Rio Hondo College are kept in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
Students may request access to those campus records that personally identify the student; the student may challenge the accuracy or the appropriateness of its retention in the campus records. Students consent is needed for the release of records covered by the FERPA Act to outside parties (e.g., prospective employers) except for those agencies entitled to access under the provisions of the Act (e.g., campus officials; other schools; federal educational and auditing officers; and requests in connection with the application of receipt of financial aid). These provisions apply to records received and used after November 1, 1974. A student may request a report summarizing the number of records he /she has requested or given consent to be released. Complaints as to procedure or improper release of record information may be filed with the Office of Education, HEW FERPA, DHEW, 330 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20210
