Release of Student Records and Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

Lansing Community College (LCC) prohibits the release of personally identifiable information, other than directory information, from student academic records without the student's written consent.

Request to Release Student Record Information (FERPA Release Form)

Lansing Community College (LCC) cannot discuss student academic and/or personally identifiable information (PII) with parents, spouse, or guardians, or any other third party without a release (consent) on file. Students may submit a Release of Information (FERPA) request form directly to the Registrar's Office authorizing LCC to discuss selected information with your designee(s). This form can be used to cancel, add, remove, or change the designee(s) on the release. Paper copies are available by visiting the Starzone or by accessing the Registrar's Office public shared drive. All completed paper copies must be scanned to the Registrar's Office on the date the student submits the form to or delivered to the StarZone.

Conditions where Prior Consent is NOT Required to Disclose Information

Certain exceptions to FERPA's general prior consent rule that are set forth in the statute and the regulations.  Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information. FERPA defines "directory information" as information contained in the education records of a student that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. Non-directory records may be released without the student's consent as follows: (1) to school officials with a legitimate educational interest; (2) to other schools to which a student seeks or intends to enroll; (3) to education officials for audit and evaluation purposes; (4) to accrediting organizations; (5) to parties in connection with financial aid to a student; (6) to organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of a school; (7) to comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena; (8) in the case of health and safety emergencies; and (9) to state and local authorities within a juvenile justice system. (20 U.S.C.S. § 1232g(b)(1

Directory Information

LCC prohibits the release of personally identifiable information other than directory information from educational records without the student's written consent.

Lansing Community College defines directory information as the following:

  1. Name of student
  2. Dates of attendance
  3. Enrollment status
  4. Awards, degrees, or certificates received
  5. Participation in officially recognized activities
  6. Sport, weight, and height of members of an athletic team
  7. Previous educational agency or institution attended
  8. LCC Email address

Under the provisions of the FERPA of 1974, as Amended, students have the right to withhold the disclosure of the Directory Information to anyone but themself, thier designee or exceptions as defined by FERPA. To request to prevent disclosure, students must submit a Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information. Students may submit the form at any time. The request will remain in effect until the student provides a written release to the Registrar's Office requesting the form to be cancelled.

Having a Prevent Disclosure of Directory information on file does not prevent staff from communicating with the student or their designee over the phone or other communication methods upon authentication of identity.
