Texarkana College complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, which was designed to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for the correction in inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings.

Students also have the right to file complaints with The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failure by the institution to comply with the Act. For additional information, please contact the Office of Enrollment Services.

Texarkana College considers students to be independent of their parents in regard to their educational records; however, information may be disclosed to the parents by obtaining the student’s written consent to do so.
