Modesto Junior College

Academic Records Regulations

Responsibility for student records rests with the Records Office. However, each college department which houses student records is charged with maintaining their privacy and access according to college policy. Division deans are responsible for certain student files when those students are enrolled in majors within the dean's division. Students may find files that pertain to them in the division office of their academic major. In addition, student information is maintained under the supervision of the Vice President of College & Administrative Services (student financial responsibility), Vice President of Student Services (financial aid, counseling materials), Vice President of Instruction, (apprenticeship, community services, work experience), and the Dean of Matriculation, Admissions and Records (all permanent academic files).

Student records will be reviewed annually, and those which are no longer required to be maintained will be destroyed in accordance with Title 5 regulations.

Student information designated as public directory information may be released at the discretion of the college to anyone at any time unless the college has received a prior written objection from the student specifying information which should not be released. Modesto Junior College will not release directory information for individual use or to private business or commercial firms for use in advertising or publicity. Directory information includes: student participation in officially recognized activities and sports, including weight, height and high school of graduation of athletic team members; degrees and awards received by students, including honors, scholarship awards, athletic awards, and Dean's/President's List recognition; start/end date of enrollment; part time/full time enrollment (current & past semesters); major (academic program); units/credits completed (current & past semesters); and awards received, including type of degree or certificate awarded/date awarded.

A student's records are open to the student, employees of the college acting in the course of their duties, and state and federal officials as defined in Sections 54610 and 54622 of the California Administrative Code.

MJC may grant access to individual student records for educational or emergency purposes and for court orders as permitted in Sections 54620 and 54622 of the California Administrative Code.

Students may ordinarily review their records at any time during working hours. The college will make records available within five to ten working days of a student's written request.

Students can file a complaint against MJC if they feel a privacy or records access/correction violation has been made. The complaint must be made in writing to the Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington , DC 20202-4605.
