The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to the student’s education records.

 

MATC complies with the Family Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 by using the following policy regarding access to, and protecting the confidentiality of, student records. For more information, call 800-729-6222 (KS only) or 620-432-0302.

 

Upon written request to the Registrar, any student of MATC will be granted access to and review of any or all records pertaining directly to said student. Access to records will be granted no more than forty-five (45) days following such request. If information in these records is found to be inaccurate, misleading, or detrimental to the student, the student can request in writing an amendment to a record and clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed and specify why it should be changed.

 

If the college decides not to amend the record as requested, the college will notify the student in writing of the decision. The student can appeal this decision through the college appeal process.

 

No personally identifiable records from MATC will be released to parents, spouse, or others without the expressed, written consent of the student. Within the provisions of the Family Rights and Privacy Act, access will be granted to the following without the consent of the student:

  • school officials, including teachers and administrators, who have a legitimate educational interest;

A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory,   academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement or security unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using College employees or officials (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.

v  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the College.

  • officials of schools to which the student wishes to transfer;
  • authorized representatives of the Comptroller General of the United States, the Secretary of Education, or an administrative head of an education agency;
  • in connection with the student’s application, receipt or continued ligibility/status for financial aid, or court order.

Should a student owe the College any delinquent amount, official records will not be released to the student or a third party. However, this does not preclude the student from personally reviewing his/her records and challenging any of the information. Financial aid transcripts may be sent at the request of other institutions.

 

Directory Information

Items defined by the College as “directory information” may be released without a student’s written consent. FERPA permits the College to limit the disclosure of and to use its discretion when choosing whether or not to release directory information to specific parties, for specific purposes, or both. In the exercise of that authority, MATC may release directory information to college employees/trustees and on-campus publications designed to promote student achievement or events or otherwise serve to advance the interest and image of the college. Examples include graduation programs, etc. In addition, two federal laws require the college to provide military recruiters, upon request, with student names, addresses and telephone listings.

 

The college designates the following as directory information:

  • Student’s name
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Major fields of study and classification
  • Full- or part-time status
  • Semesters of attendance
  • Degrees, awards and honors received

 

Students who wish to prevent disclosure of directory information must inform the Registrar. Students who submit this request should note that this action will exclude their name from certain college publications.

 

Students have the right to file a complaint with the US Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA.

 

The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

Family Policy Compliance Office

US Department of Education
