CWI adheres to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), that provides students with privacy rights pertaining to their educational records. Certain information may only be accessed by the student. Security measures are in place to ensure that student privacy rights are protected.

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. Official student records are kept in four offices: Registrar, Student Accounts, One Stop Student Services, and Financial Aid. Information on students may be two general kinds: academic (registered attendance, courses taken, probation or suspension, grades, degree programs), and personal (financial statement, age, address, telephone #, and disciplinary).

Correspondence that is mailed to the student will be addressed to the students’ local address on record. Students need to take an active role in understanding their financial responsibility and to stay informed at all times of their current status and future registrations. We want you to assist them as needed, but it’s important to let them learn how to deal with financial responsibilities and meeting any deadlines.
