Includes any person who is or has been in attendance at the College and with respect to whom the College maintains an education record whether or not that person is currently in attendance. Thus, the records of persons who have applied to and been admitted by the College, but who have not yet begun to attend classes, are not subject to FERPA. The College considers all students who have attained the age of 18 to be independent of their parents and will not release records to parents absent the written consent of the student.
