All courses attempted and grades recorded become a permanent part of the student’s academic history. If a student receives a failing grade, that grade will remain on the record. If such a course is retaken, the new registration and grade will also be recorded on the student’s permanent record.

Student records and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, helps protect the privacy of student records. It is a federal law that requires a written institutional policy to be adopted and a statement of procedures covering the privacy rights of students to be made available. The Act provides the right to inspect and review educational records, to seek to amend those records and to limit disclosure of information from the records. The Act applies to all institutions that are the recipients of federal funding.
Mater Ecclesiae College maintains the confidentiality of student records and provides
students with the right to inspect and review information contained in those records according to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. Students have a right to withhold disclosure. To request that information be withheld, they should submit written notification which must be received at least one week prior to the date of registration. The school must provide a student with an opportunity to review his or her education records within 45 days of the receipt of a request. Parents of dependent students have the right to access their children’s records. Procedures for any complaints and grievances can be requested from the Director of Student Affairs. Records may be requested from the Registrar’s Office.
