Additional Information for Parents

Access to Student Education Records

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Law (FERPA), a federal law, the college cannot release information contained in a student’s education record without consent from the student, even if the student is under the age of 18. A student can provide a parent or other specified individual access to their education record by signing a Student Release of Information form. The individual granted access must appear in-person with photo identification; no information can be given by phone.

Grades and Transcripts

Final grades are available to students on MyAACC. The college does not mail final grade reports. AACC releases grades and transcripts only to the student unless the student has authorized release by signing a Student Release of Information form.

Interim Grade Notices

The interim grade is intended to be an early indicator of a student’s performance and is graded satisfactory, unsatisfactory, or unsatisfactory due to non-attendance. Only students receiving an unsatisfactory interim grade will receive a notice.  Interim notices are mailed to the student’s address on file approximately five weeks after the start of the term.

Verification of Enrollment for Insurance Purposes

Students must request verification of enrollment and/or good student discounts in writing using the Verification of Enrollment form. A minimum of 12 credits is considered full-time enrollment at AACC. 

Graduation

Students must apply to graduate from AACC. Please visit our graduation web page for more information.
