Providing Records to Third Parties
The general policy of Trenholm State Community College is to refuse access to student records to third parties without the written consent of the individual student. Should a student wish to have such records released, a written request must be directed to the proper records official specifying the records to be released, the person and address to whom records are to be released, and a request for copies to the student, if desired.

A record of requests of access, the legitimate interest involved, and action taken will be placed in the student’s file for all requests of the file, except those from school officials as noted in paragraph one. The Director of Records will supervise the inspection of individual student records, and the student’s record file shall not be taken from the designated records office. The student may obtain one unofficial copy of his/her academic record in writing. An unofficial copy is defined as copy that does not bear the official seal of the College embossed on the record, but otherwise, an official copy when released by the College’s records official.

In 2015, the Alabama Legislature vested oversight of the state’s public two-year institutions of higher education (known as the Alabama Community College System (ACCS)) with the Alabama Community College System Board of Trustees. The Alabama Legislature further directed the Board of Trustees to delegate to the System’s Chancellor the authority to act and make decisions concerning the management and operation of the community and technical colleges. The Chancellor is assisted in these duties by the staff of the System Office, formerly known as the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education. Consumer and student complaints that are not resolved at the institutional level will be arbitrated at the state level by the ACCS System Office.
The ACCS is committed to respecting and supporting the work of its member institutions and to providing a quality educational experience for all students. The objective of the student complaint process is to ensure that the concerns and complaints of students are addressed fairly and are resolved promptly. The Alabama Community College System requires each institution to establish its own procedures to address student grievances and complaints. A student must exhaust his/her rights under the institution’s official complaint/grievance policy before advancing any complaint to the System Office of Alabama Community College System. The procedures for filing student complaints are outlined on the College’s Website and Students may file consumer/student complaints with the Alabama Community College System by following these procedures: Student Complaint Procedures
