Transcripts of Records
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (FERPA), also known as the Buckley Amendment (PL93- 380), will apply to the handling of student records at Wallace Community College. Transcripts must be requested in writing or online through myWCC. There is no charge for this service. Transcript request forms are available from one of the following College locations: the Admissions and Records Office on the Wallace Campus in Dothan, the Student Services Office on the Sparks Campus in Eufaula, or from the College Web site at www.wallace.edu/admissions/registrars_office.aspx.
In compliance with FERPA, Wallace Community College does not release transcripts from the College except when students submit written requests or online through myWCC. Students or former students who desire transcripts of their records must write or request online through myWCC, well in advance of the time the transcript is needed, to the Director of Enrollment Services/ Registrar, giving student number, date of birth, dates of attendance, and name and address of the institution or person to whom the records should be sent. Students must state all names that may have been entered on their records. Students may secure unofficial transcripts (stamped ISSUED TO STUDENT), but official transcripts are sent only to colleges or organizations. Official transcripts cannot be hand delivered unless specifically requested by the College or organization receiving the transcript. These transcripts are stamped ISSUED TO STUDENT.
Wallace Community College does not issue copies of transcripts from another school. Transcripts are not issued to students who have failed in some way to complete admission requirements. Advance notice of 72 hours is required on all transcript requests.
