Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) 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.

Student Conduct Code

HawCC has a Student Conduct Code which defines expected conduct for students and specifies those acts subject to University sanctions.Students should familiarize themselves with the Student Conduct Code, since upon enrollment at HawCC, the student has placed himself/herself under the policies and regulations of the University and its duly constituted bodies. Disciplinary procedures have been identified in the policy and are designed to afford certain procedural protection to any student alleged to have committed an infraction of the Student Conduct Code warranting disciplinary action. The Committee has developed procedures for hearing allegations of misconduct. View Policy Haw 7.101   http://hawaii.hawaii.edu/student-conduct-code
