Privacy of Student Records

Mayland Community College is committed to protecting our students’ information according to the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and the College’s policy on accessing student records.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of Student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education, which includes Mayland Community College. Students may grant parents as well as other individuals and outside agencies access to their educational and/or financial records by completing the Permission to Release Information Form (link to form).

This information can be reviewed at the FERPA and Student Records Access information page.

In order for any person in Financial Aid to discuss a student’s financial aid information with a parent (or anyone else), the student must have a Permission to Release Information Form on file with Financial Aid.

Financial Aid provides the following information so that parents may better understand and calculate costs.
