What is an Academic Agreement?
An Academic Agreement is helpful for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution. FTCC has agreements with various colleges, universities, and educational facilities that determine what credits will transfer.
Fayetteville Technical Community College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide both enrollment verification and degree verification to qualified requestors. Current and past students may obtain these documents through National Student Clearinghouse website.
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.
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.”
