Student Records

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their academic records. For more information on specific provisions of the Act, refer to the “Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities” section in the Student Handbook.

Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under FERPA. To withhold disclosure, students must send written notification to the Enrollment Services office within the first three weeks of the semester in which the withholding of Directory Information is to take effect. Request forms are available in the Enrollment Services office.

The college assumes that failure on the part of any student to specifically request the withholding of categories of Directory Information indicates approval for disclosure.

Certification of Enrollment

Students who need official certification of their enrollment at MCCC may obtain it from the Student Records office during normal working hours.


Students can immediately access unofficial transcripts from “Student Self-Service” in the MyMercer portal up until two years after their last semester at the college. Thereafter, students must request official transcripts.

All requests for official transcripts must be submitted through the Parchment Storefront. Refunds are not issued for eTranscripts, due to the near real-time processing and delivery of orders.

Transcripts are not released if the student has outstanding financial obligations with the college.
