Citrus College student education records are maintained in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 and the California Education Code. Written student consent is required for access and release of information defined as educational records in federal and state law as described in
Citrus College Administrative Procedure 5040
. A student's directory information (as defined in AP 5040) may be released upon request unless admissions and records receives written notification that a student reserves the right to authorize in writing, on an individual request basis, the access and release of the directory information. Such a notice of restriction will remain in effect until it is countermanded in writing. Additionally, the law provides that a student may request access to the college records which are personally identifiable to that student, and may challenge the accuracy or the appropriateness of retention of information in the college record.
Questions concerning student rights under the privacy act should be directed to admissions and records at (626) 914-8511.
