Release of Information


Information regarded by Napa Valley Community College District as “directory information” will be released for distribution unless a Student Information Release form is completed in the Admissions and Records Office. Information about what is included in “directory information” may be obtained from the Admissions and Records Office.

Other student educational record information will not be released without a signed Student Consent for Release of Information form from the student, other than school officials with a “need to know”. This includes grades, ethnicity, ID number, academic progress, or any other non-directory information.

Pursuant to the Solomon Amendment (Public Law 104-208 and 104-206), directory information, including student addresses, will be released to the Department of Defense, if requested, for recruiting purposes. Students who do not want their name released should complete a Student Information Release form. Go to Admissions and Records online or in person for the forms.
