Privacy Release

Pursuant to the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, the North Orange County Community College District has established Board Policy 5040 (BP 5040) — Student Records Privacy, which covers the release of student records. The college may make public, without prior student consent, only certain directory information. This information will consist of the student’s name, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous public or private school attended by the student, and any other information authorized in writing by the student.

Students who wish to have this directory information further restricted may do so on the online College Application for Admission or by making the request in the Admissions and Records Office.

No other student information will be disclosed without prior student consent except to college officials and employees of the District with legitimate educational interests unless pursuant to a court order or lawfully issued subpoena, or as otherwise authorized by applicable federal and state laws.
