Notice of Privacy Rights of Students
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, with which the University intends to fully comply, is designed to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office concerning alleged failures by the University to comply with the act.
The University’s institutional policy concerning privacy rights of students explains, in detail, the procedures to be used by the University for compliance with the provisions of FERPA. Copies of the policy and a list of all records maintained on students by the University are available from the Service Central office.
Notice of Directory Information
The University designates the following student information as public or directory information. Such information may be disclosed by the institution for any purpose at its discretion.
Name, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail address, dates of attendance, class level
The most recent previous institution attended, major field(s) of study, degrees and awards received
Participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and the height and weight of members of athletic teams
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of directory information under the provisions of FERPA. To withhold disclosure, students must provide written notification to the Service Central Office.

Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of personal integrity. Cheating, dishonesty, and plagiarism in any form (unintentional or intentional) are contrary to Christian ethics and are grounds for course failure, probation, or dismissal. Plagiarism involves presenting the work of another as one’s own. To avoid unintentional plagiarism, students should follow standard procedures for referencing papers and reports.
