EEO/Title IX/Section 504 Statement
Livingstone College does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status in the provision of educational opportunities, services, programs, benefits, and employment. In addition, the College does not discriminate on the basis of sex or disability in the educational programs and activities offered, pursuant to the requirements of Title XI of the Education Amendments of 1972, Pub. L./92-318; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Pub. L./93112, respectively. This policy applies to both employment and admission to the College.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) governs Livingstone College’s policy regarding access to student records (such as grades, grade point average, and class rank). Under this law, students have the right to inspect and challenge the accuracy of information contained in their college educational record.
FERPA places restrictions on the College’s ability to release student records. The College is authorized to release records only to former or current students, or to specific college or government officials. Exceptions to this occur when the student gives prior written consent for the release of his/her records to specified persons. Parents can have access to a student’s records only when they fulfill the following two conditions: (a) they have declared the student to be a dependent on their last Federal Income Tax Return form (documentation must be provided); and (b) they submit a signed statement to that effect to the Registrar’s Office.
FERPA does allow the College to release the following kinds of information (not considered private records) unless the student requests that it be withheld: directory information (such as student name, address, telephone number), date and place of birth, classification, college, major, dates of attendance, degrees and awards, the most recent educational agency or institution attended, participation in school activities and sports, and weight and height (for special activities). Photographic, video, and electronic images of students taken and maintained by the College are also considered directory information. Any student not wanting this information released must make a written request to the Registrar prior to the close of each spring semester for the following academic year.
As a matter of practice, the College does not sell or give away lists, which are in unpublished or computerized form, to any outside agency, individual, or business. Questions concerning the policy for the release of information should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.
