Release of Information

Release of Information

It is the intent of Frank Phillips College to comply fully with The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 which protects the privacy of educational records, establishes the rights of students to inspect and review their education records, and provides guidelines for correction of inaccurate or misleading data.

Other than directory information or legally required releases of information, the College will not permit release of educational records without the student’s written consent. The consent must be signed and dated by the student and must indicate which records are to be released, the purpose of the release, and the name of the agency to which the records will be released.

Permission Release Form

A permission release form can be filed in the office of educational services as the written consent of the release of educational records to any person or persons listed on the permission release form. The permission release form stays on the student’s record as long as the student is continuously enrolled at FPC. It becomes null and void once the student misses one long semester (fall or spring). If students would like to change the form at any time, it is their responsibility to notify the Office of Educational Services.

Request for release of student information or for additional information concerning FERPA should be directed to the Director of Enrollment Management at 806-457-4200 x 707 or mstevens@fpctx.edu.

Records Overview

Review of Records

Students are entitled to review information contained in their permanent educational records. Any student who desires to review his or her record may do so upon written request to the office immediately responsible for the record. After review, students are entitled to challenge the accuracy of records through informal and formal hearings.

Hold Placed on Records

A hold is placed on a student’s records, including grades and transcripts, when the student fails to resolve financial obligations with the college. A hold will also be placed on the student’s transcript when the student fails to provide required transcripts from prior educational institutions. The hold remains in effect until all obligations have been resolved. Students may not register for classes until all holds have been resolved.

Residency Status

Residency Status

To be considered Texas residents, students must clearly establish residence in Texas for the twelve months preceding their enrollment. The student is responsible for registering under the proper residence classification and for providing documentation as required. If there is any question about the right to classification as a resident of Texas, it is the student’s obligation, prior to the time of enrollment, to raise the question for official determination by the administrative staff of Frank Phillips College. Students classified as Texas residents must affirm the correctness of that classification as part of the admission procedure. If classification should change, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the Director of Enrollment Management. Failure to notify the institution constitutes a violation of the oath of residency and will result in disciplinary action.

All students must pay tuition according to their resident classification as follows:

A resident of the Borger Junior College District is a student who resides within the Borger Junior College District and is not classified as a Non-Resident of Texas as explained in this section.

A resident of Ochiltree County is a student who resides within Ochiltree County and is not classified as a Non-Resident of Texas as explained in this section.

A Non-resident (of a Taxing District) is a student that neither resides within the Borger Junior College District or Ochiltree County nor is classified as a Nonresident of Texas.

A Non-resident of Texas is a student younger than 18 years of age who does not live with his or her family and whose family resides in another state or whose family has not resided in Texas for the 12 months preceding the date of registration or a student of 18 years of age or over who resides out of state or who has not been a resident of the state 12 months after his 18th birthday or for 12 months immediately preceding the date of registration.

 

Residency Status

Residency rules are established by the state Legislature and governed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Frank Phillips College is obligated to the State of Texas and the citizens of the FPC District to uphold all rules and requirements of residency for tuition purposes.

Steps for Applying for a Residency Status Change
Please be aware that as part of this process you may be asked to provide numerous pieces of documentation that you may consider to be of a personal nature. Failure to provide the requested documents may result in the rejection of your petition. Changes in tuition status are not retroactive.
