Question   
Are my college records private?   
Answer   
When you applied to GPC, you were issued a Student ID number (all GPC ID numbers start with 900) to protect the security of your social security number. This number is used for all GPC records.

Federal regulations (FERPA, the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act) prevent us from speakng to your parents. If your parent wants to talk to your teacher about you, you must be present and give your permission for the instructor to speak to your parent.

For more information, go to FERPA. http://www.gpc.edu/~gpcem/ferpa.htm
