STUDENT RECORDS / RIGHT OF PRIVACY
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
- Students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
- Students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
- Generally, schools must have written permission from student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions:
- School officials with legitimate educational interest;
- Other schools to which a student is transferring;
- Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
- Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
- Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
- Accrediting organizations;
- To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
- Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
- State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.
Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance.
Those students experiencing academic problems are advised by an Instructor, Student Services Representative and/or the Director of Education in order to help them overcome whatever academic difficulty they experience. These staff members are working with students who struggle with school pressures and learning disabilities and need assistance with educational planning and academic or personal problems. When students need assistance in the matter other than academic, they are provided with referrals to either one of the CES departments or other specialized programs.
CES COLLEGE can provide information to help students conduct their own independent search for housing in the Los Angeles. For international students, CES provides housing placement assistance. To learn more, please talk to a Student Services Representative.
The school maintains a number of reference books, magazines, videotapes, audiotapes and other pertinent publications relevant to the programs offered. Reference materials are kept for use on the school premises, but can be checked out by special permission of the course instructor. In these cases, all materials must be returned the next school day.
Job Placement Assistance
Placement assistance is provided to active students and graduates at no additional charge. However, no guarantee for employment or level of income can be made. Classes are provided where special attention is given to such topics as resume preparation, job search techniques and interviewing techniques. Guest speakers from industry may be invited in order to provide helpful information on how to find and secure jobs.
Tutoring may be arranged with the individual instructor. Fees, if any, are reflected in the enrollment agreement and/or may be discussed when additional tutoring may be needed.
