Student Information Disclosure Policy
Students are covered by a federal law called FERPA – which stands for “Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.” This law protects the confidentiality of certain information and records pertaining to students, including those at Seattle Central Community College. Unless the student consents (or a FERPA exception applies), Seattle Central is prohibited from disclosing to third parties information from a student’s education records.

Directory Information
FERPA permits colleges to define several types of student information as “directory information,” which Seattle Central may disclose to third parties without students’ consent (unless the student has requested in writing that the college NOT disclose directory information about that student).

  • Student’s name
  • Enrollment status in the college
  • Date(s) of enrollment
  • Area of study
  • Awards granted by the college
  • Participation in official sports activities
  • Weight and height of athletic team members, AND
  • Email address

Exceptions to the directory–information–only restrictions are: Judicial subpoena of records, upon condition that the college makes a reasonable effort to notify the student in advance of release of records. Emergency situations, if knowledge of personal information is necessary to protect the health or safety of a student or other person(s).
