Access to student records
Johnston Community College is required to comply with guidelines set forth in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. Under FERPA, the access rights of parents and legal guardians are transferred to students once a student has turned eighteen or is attending any postsecondary educational institution. Additional information about FERPA may be found through the U.S. Department of Education.
How you can help!
This is an exciting time for your son or daughter. The transition from high school to college can be challenging. This is a period of growth and opportunity for your child and while parental participation is encouraged, it is important for students to take ownership of their educational experience. One of the best ways you can be involved is to encourage and maintain open communication with your child.
