Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
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.
