Complete your part of the form and sign it to indicate your permission to release the information.

Faxed forms will be accepted provided that they have been properly completed (by you). The office fax number is 703-891-1789

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), only directory information may be released to third parties. Enrollment status, dates of attendance and degree information are directory information.
If you do not wish information about your enrollment status and degrees released to third parties, contact the Office of the Registrar to establish your FERPA privacy hold. A privacy option set while attending the College will remain on your record even after you stop attending or graduate. Alumni and former students who would like to remove their FERPA hold so that a third party can receive enrollment/degree information should update their privacy settings by contacting the Office of the Registrar. Those that do not have access to the campus should contact the Office of the Registrar, at email@example.com.
