Student Rights and Responsibilities
The Associated Students of Treasure Valley Community College have prepared a document outlining student rights and responsibilities.
STUDENT EDUCATIONAL RECORDS
STUDENT RIGHT TO PRIVACY (FERPA)
TVCC abides by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Pell - Buckley Amendment). This act was designated to protect the privacy of education records. It also establishes the right of students to inspect their educational records and provides guidelines for correcting inaccurate or misleading data. The policy is available in the Student Services Center.
The College reserves the right to withhold transcripts from students who are in debt to the institution. Students have the right to discuss the matter with a representative empowered to resolve such disputes.

Educational records may be released to parents under the following circumstances:
(1) through written consent of the student, and/or
(2) in compliance with a subpoena.
