Citrus College student records are maintained in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and the California Education Code. Written student consent is required for access and release of information defined as educational records in the federal and state laws as described in Citrus College Policy 5180.
A student's directory information (student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, class schedule, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and most recent previous public or private school attended) may be released upon request unless the Admissions and Records Office 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's rights under the privacy act should be directed to the Admissions and Records Office, (626) 914-8511.
