Disciplinary records are kept in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. Thus, disciplinary actions are recorded on the student’s “personal record” and are not placed on the student’s transcript. These disciplinary records are retained for a period of one academic year after the student graduates or after the student withdraws from the college. However, at the college’s sole discretion, it may keep and maintain disciplinary records for longer than one academic year. After one academic year or thereafter, when the college deems appropriate, all disciplinary records may be destroyed. At all times, these personal records are confidential and are not available to outside individuals or organizations, including investigation agencies, unless permission has been granted in writing by the student whose record has been requested or records are subpoenaed by a court of law. Parents typically will not be informed of disciplinary action.
