Educational Verifications

The Federal Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 was established to protect the privacy of student educational records. Oakland Community College supports the tenets of this legislation.

The College, under (FERPA) , may disclose student information  for educational verification to third parties** if we are given:

  1. Written consent from the student in the form of a Release Form which specifies educational institution
  2. The items requested for verification from our records
  3. The name of the third-party organization and, if applicable, contact name
  4. The address or fax number of the recipient, depending on how you want the information sent

 Requests may be by either of two methods:
