    Step 10*

    Submit the FERPA Form to TCC. (Recommended, but not required.)

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Dual Credit students must submit the Waiver of Academic Privacy before the College will release the student's academic record to any third-party, including parents. To submit the Waiver of Academic Privacy to TCC, students must:

    1.      Download the form from the following address.
