The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, is a federal law that protects the privacy and confidentiality of personally identifiable information contained within student education records. Colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System comply with FERPA's confidentiality protections and adhere to procedures dealing with student education records and directory information recommended by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.
A WKCTC student is classified as anyone who has been issued a student ID number (also known as an EMPLID). A student may give consent to any individual by logging into their student self-service and filling out the consent to release information. The student must assign a passcode for each delegate and the individual that is granted permission must present photo identification and the correct passcode prior to requesting information.
In its discretion, a college or KCTCS as appropriate may provide Directory Information in accordance with the provisions of the Act (FERPA) to include:
The Solomon Amendment is a federal law that allows military recruiters access to student recruitment information. The Solomon Amendment supersedes FERPA. However, if a student has submitted a request through the Records Office to restrict the release of directory information, then no information from the student’s educational record will be released under the Solomon Amendment.
Definition – Student Recruitment Information
Procedure – Release of Information to Military Recruiter
Information will be released for military recruitment purposes only. The military recruiters may request student recruitment information once each semester for each of the 12 eligible units within the five branches of the service:
The request should be submitted in writing, on letterhead, clearly identifying the military recruiting organization.
