Longwood University recognizes the importance of protecting student privacy, including those in distance education courses. Consistent with a federal requirement enforced through standard 10.6 (b) of the Principles of Accreditation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, states that universities that offer distance or correspondence education must have a written procedure for protecting the privacy of students enrolled in distance and correspondence education courses or programs.
The purpose of this policy is to formalize the application of current privacy policies to distance education students.
This policy applies to all units of the university that have contact with distance education students and/or access to distance education students’ personal information.
