Board of Trustee Approval: October 1, 2012
Revised: October 1, 2018

The Board of Trustees is committed to the protection of the privacy of students and their education records and the College’s compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”). The College qualifies as an educational institution within the meaning of FERPA, and therefore all education records are private to the student and the College.

Sandhills Community College data and records management systems and online student resources are provided for the purpose of conducting SCC official business. The administrative, technical, and physical safeguards in accessing, collecting, distributing, processing, protecting, storing, using, transmitting, and disposing of student information and records will be established by each office that uses student records and will follow state and federal guidelines to provide security and confidentiality of all student records and information.
