Students Rights and Responsibilities
CCU complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (the Buckley Amendment) which is designed to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 provides that information from student records will not be identified by nor conveyed to unauthorized parties. Exceptions are made for CCU officials, teachers, authorized federal agencies, and in connection with the application for or receipt of financial aid. No other parties may obtain information unless you have provided CCU with written consent. Students have access to their information on demand. Students 18 years of age and older must sign a consent form in order for parents to obtain academic or financial information. The appropriate Release of Information forms are available from the Admissions Office and online.
Student Grievance Procedures
Calvary Chapel University (CCU) acknowledges that in any college community there is the possibility of conflict and student dissatisfaction. CCU wishes to provide educational instruction and services of the highest quality to its students, and facilitate equity and harmony in the application of policies and procedures. When a student has a complaint or grievance, CCU has developed procedures to resolve the matter.
A grievance is a complaint arising out of any alleged unauthorized or unjustified act or decision by a member of the college community that in any way adversely affects the status, rights, or privileges of any student.
A student may seek redress within 30 days of the alleged grievance. The burden of proof rests with the individual making the complaint. The grievance procedure is listed in the CCU Student Handbook and is available on the website, www.calvarychapeluniversity.com.
