For Alumnae

FERPA and the Alumnae

Your FERPA rights begin when you enroll for classes and continue after graduation. Students who have ceased attendance or who have graduated from Bennett College have the same FERPA rights as currently enrolled students to inspect and review their records and may have a hearing to amend an education record.

Former students may request non-disclosure of their education records, but Bennett College does not have to honor the request. However, Bennett College can choose to grant the right of non-disclosure to former students.

Degree Verification - Self Service

We are pleased to announce that current students, alumnae and third party requestors can now obtain degree verifications online through the National Student Clearinghouse using Degree Verify. Degree Verify provides 24/7 verification service for current students and graduates. Degree Verify is FERPA compliant and is open day or night, even when your office is closed. Holidays, weekends or after hours, employers, background screening firms, and others can always verify degrees for alumnae instantly. Using Degree Verify speeds job, graduate school and loan application checks.

If you are a Bennett College Alumnae, please visit http://www.mystudentcenter.org/ for enrollment and degree verification.
