FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law (https://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html) 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.

For a certificate program to be considered eligible for federal Title IV aid, the program must lead to “gainful employment in a recognized occupation.”

The U.S. Department of Education requires that institutions provide students with information regarding total costs for tuition and fees, graduation rates and debt-to-earnings ratios for gainful employment programs.

In compliance with federal Title IV regulations, Ocean County College has provided information on our certificate programs leading to gainful employment.
