Student Records

All student records are kept in our Enrollment Services Centers.

Transcripts are available upon request. There is no fee for this service.

The college releases directory information upon legitimate request. Directory information is defined as a student’s name, date of birth, semesters attended, most recent previous school attended, major field of study, and degrees and awards received. To keep this information from being released, students may file a privacy act request with the Enrollment Services Centers. 

All students attending classes at PPCC are assumed to be independent, and therefore, information, other than directory information, is not provided to parents or other persons or agencies unless the student authorizes the FERPA Student Consent Form with the Enrollment Services Centers.

No transcript of information other than that listed above is normally released to the public without written consent that specifies the information to be released. The college releases records and accounts to appropriate U.S. government representatives in compliance with federal statutes. In addition, certain state officials may lawfully be entitled to information from student records.

Information concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is available at http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html.

All application/records materials become property of PPCC when submitted to the institution.
