The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. (An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution at any age.) These rights include:

  1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days after the day the College receives a request for access. A student should submit to the Registrar, a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The school official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the school official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
  2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA. A student who wishes to ask the College to amend a record should write the Registrar, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the College decides not to amend the record as requested, the College will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  3. The right to provide written consent before the College discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. The College discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official typically includes a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position; a person serving on the board of trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee. A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the College who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent or a student volunteering to assist another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official typically has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the College.
  4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

    Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, DC 20202

The College considers the following information to be directory information: name, date of birth, local and home addresses, telephone number, current term hours carried, classification (first year student, etc.), major, dates of attendance, degrees and honors earned and dates, the most previous education agency or institution attended, participation in College organizations, and pictures of students participating in College activities.

Questions about FERPA may be directed to the College Registrar, Debbie Howey, at 573-334-6825 extension 2215 or email

Disability Resources

Southeast Health College of Nursing and Health Sciences provides an accessible and supportive environment for students with disabilities. The college is committed to making reasonable modifications to its academic requirements when such modifications are necessary to ensure that academic requirements do not discriminate (or have the effect of discriminating) on the basis of disability, against a qualified applicant or student with a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Equal access for qualified students with disabilities is an obligation of the college under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Information is available from Dr. Dee Blakely in office 108, by phone at (573) 334-6825 ext. 2239, or by emailing

The college is committed to ensuring that no otherwise-qualified individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently than other individuals because of the absence of auxiliary aids or other appropriate services; however, accommodations cannot result in an undue burden to the college or fundamentally alter the requirements essential to a program of instruction. The college does not discriminate on the basis of any disability, including intellectual disabilities.

If a qualified student with a disability believes an academic adjustment is necessary, he/she should immediately contact the Disability Officer , by telephone (573) 334-6825 ext. 2239; e-mail: or by mail at 2001 William St., Cape Girardeau, MO 63703, Attn: Disability Officer. Please see the ADA policy for more specific guidelines regarding requests.
