| The law provides students with the right to inspect and review information contained
in their education records, to have a hearing if the outcome of the challenge is
unsatisfactory, and to submit explanatory statements for inclusion in their files
if the decisions of the hearing panels are unacceptable.
The Registrar at Lanier Technical College has been designated by the College to
coordinate the inspection and review procedures for student education records, which
include admissions, personal, academic, financial files, cooperative education,
and placement records. Any student wishing to review his/her education record must
make written request to the Registrar listing the item or items of interest. Only
records covered by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act will be made available within forty-five days of the
request. Students may have copies made of their records with certain exceptions
(e.g., a copy of the academic record for which a financial "hold" exists or transcript
of an original or source document which exists elsewhere).
Copies will be made at the student's expense at prevailing rates. Education records
do not include records of instructional, administrative, and educational personnel
which are the sole possession of the college, records of the law enforcement unit,
student health records, employment records or alumni records. Health records, however,
may be reviewed by physicians of the student's choosing.
