Use and Release of Student Information (FERPA)

The Los Rios Board of Trustees, in order to meet the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and the Education Code, have established policies giving students and parents of dependent students access to certain designated records. Complete copies of the Act, Education Code, and Board policies are available in the Admissions & Records offices. The primary rights afforded each student are the right to inspect and review their educational records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of information from the records.

Los Rios Regulation R-2265 provides for the release, without student consent, of Student Directory Information, i.e., student's name, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and most recent previous public or private school attended. In addition, federal law provides that representatives of the U.S. Department of Defense shall be provided a student's name, address, and telephone number for recruitment purposes. Students have the right to refuse the release of one or more such designated categories by submitting a written statement to the Admissions & Records office.

Questions? Contact the Admissions & Records office at (916) 608-6500 or (530) 642-5644.
