FERPA

The Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, ensures confidentiality of educational records, prescribes conditions under which information about students can be released and defines general record-keeping requirements that the institution must maintain to ensure accuracy and access of student educational data.

In conjunction to the standards of confidentiality put forth through FERPA, Tunxis Community College makes available to our students the

Request for Non-Disclosure of Directory Information Form

which notes the types of information considered as directory information and gives the opportunity to submit a request to withhold student information from publication.

For students who wish to withhold this student information, please print the form provided, complete it, and return it to the Records Office (Registrar) within the first 10 days of the start of the semester.

PLEASE NOTE: The request to have directory information withheld means this information will not be released, even in emergency situations.

For more information, contact the Records Office (Registrar) during regular business hours at 860.255.3533
