Student Records

The Office of Registrar Services maintains student records on all actively enrolled students.  These records consist of, but are not limited to the following documents:

The responsibility for the protection of the privacy of student educational records rests primarily with the Registrar.  Florence-Darlington Technical College complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 and coordinates the disposition of student records with the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.

Information retained in the student's permanent academic record housed in the vault located in the Registrar Services Office may include the following:

Florence-Darlington Technical College must maintain a master academic record (transcript) for all former and current students for 75 years as noted in the Records Retention Schedule regarding this procedure.

The Registrar Services and Admissions personnel are the only staff authorized to access student records in the vault. Once a file has entered the vault from the Admissions acceptance files, it becomes a permanent student record.  A file is only removed from the vault when appropriate written requests are filed with the Registrar or for the purpose of re-admitting a student to the College.
