Dear Parent and Family Member of Wiregrass Georgia Technical College Students:
Welcome to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College! We believe establishing a relationship with parents and family members is an important component of a successful college experience for Wiregrass Georgia Technical College (WGTC) students. We believe that the parents and family have an essential role of support for their student. We encourage our parents to be active in their student’s college experience but at the same time allow them to grow and develop into self-advocates. This website is designed to give you, as the parent, the tools and resources to make your transition and theirs, as smooth as possible.
Many changes have recently been made in regards to your student’s education:
We encourage you as a parent or family member, who supports your family, to come out and let us tell you about what is going on at Wiregrass. You’ll be glad you did! We look forward to meeting you!
A note on FERPA:
Federal law (the Family Rights and Privacy Act) prohibits College employees, including our Academic Advisors, Deans or staff members, from providing academic information to anyone other than the student without the student’s permission. For instance, grades cannot be released to parents, so we encourage our students to keep their parents updated on how they are doing in their coursework throughout each semester. The Registrar’s Office has more specific details about FERPA and what information you, as a parent, may access about your son or daughter.
FERPA questions for parents:
May I access my child's student records? At the post-secondary level, parents have no inherent right to access or inspect their son's or daughter's educational records. The right of access is limited solely to the student.
May I view my child's grades, exams, or academic progress? Final grades, grades on exams, and other information about academic progress are examples of the confidential information that makes up part of a student's educational record. This information is protected under FERPA and parents do not have access to it unless the student has provided express, written authorization.
What about crisis or emergency situations? If nondirectory information is needed to resolve a crisis or emergency situation, an educational institution may release that information if the institution determines that the information is necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals.
Whom should I contact with questions or concerns? Direct general questions to the vice president for student affairs at (229) 468-2033, or the registrar at (229) 468-2032, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, as appropriate.
