Protection of Student Records (FERPA)

Madison College is committed to protecting your privacy per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). This federal law governs the release of and access to your student records. 

Madison College may release the following information, considered to be directory information, to the public without the student’s prior consent:

  • Student name
  • Major field of study (program)
  • Dates of attendance (by term)
  • Enrollment status (full- or part-time)
  • Degrees and awards received
  • Participation in officially recognized activities and sports
  • Weight and height of athletic team members
  • College email address 

Any other personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, grades, class locations, admissions status, financial aid status, tuition cost and balance due cannot be disclosed without the student’s written consent. Learn more from the U.S. Department of Education.

Student Rights

You have the right to review and inspect your Madison College education records within 45 days after the Enrollment Center receives your written request. Photocopies may be provided at the student's expense.

You have the right to make a written request to amend your education records if you believe threy are inaccurate or misleading.

You have the right to provide written consent before Madison College discloses personally identifiable information from your educational record except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

You have the right to request that the college withhold directory information. You may do this in your Student Center in the myMadisonCollege Classic Portal under Personal Information. You may also complete the Request to Withhold Student Information Form (PDF, 787KB).

You have the right to revoke a previously submitted request. You may do this in your Student Center in the myMadisonCollege Classic Portal under Personal Information. You may also complete the Request to Revoke Witholding of Student Information Form (PDF, 787KB).

Red Flag Rules

In 2003, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other agencies created what is known as the Red Flag Rules. This law requires Madison College to have an Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with newly opened or existing accounts. The Red Flags Rule allows the College to detect and respond to any Red Flags to prevent and mitigate identity theft.

The College's Identity Theft Prevention Program involves a four-step process, and is in compliance with FTC requirements:

  1. Identification of Red Flags
  2. Detection of Red Flags
  3. Prevention and Mitigation of Identity Theft
  4. Annual Review and Update of Program

Please review FERPA and Red Flag Rules for Students (PDF, 679 KB) for details on how Madison College protects your records.

Release

You are allowed to grant third parties (relatives, employers, friends) access to your academic records. This will allow them to obtain the information you specify without needing your immediate consent.

  • Consent automatically expires at the end of each academic year and must be renewed for continued access

  • Records from Counseling Services or Disability Resource Services must be obtained directly through their offices.

Complete and submit the Consent for Release of Student Information (PDF, 782KB). 

Once a year, Madison College sends all students an Annual Notification of FERPA rights.
