Johnson County Community College
Series 300: Students 
Section 319: Student Rights and Responsibilities

The college will make every effort to comply with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. The act was designed to (1) protect the privacy of educational records, (2) establish the right of students to inspect and review their educational records, and (3) provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students who feel their rights under this act have been violated may file a complaint with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failure of the institution to comply.

Procedures for compliance with the act will be published annually in the college catalog and will be available for student review in the Vice President of Student Services Office.

The college will comply with the Kansas Open Records Act, K.S.A. 45-215 et seq. (as amended). The act is to be liberally construed and applied to promote compliance.
