Copiah-Lincoln Community College eLearning Student Privacy Notice and Notification of Charges Associated with Verification of Student Identity

Protecting Your Privacy

Copiah-Lincoln Community College works closely with the Mississippi Virtual Community College (MSVCC) to assure that students' privacy is protected when participating in eLearning courses.  As the host institution, Copiah-Lincoln Community College, through the MSVCC, utilizes https and secure FTP processes to protect student information during the transfer and storage of registration and course and grade information. The Learning Management System (LMS) and Student Information System (SIS) share a unique, system-generated ID for each student.  The LMS ID is a combination of the college school code and the unique SIS ID.  The LMS uses single sign-on (SSO) controlled by Microsoft Azure active directory credentials which are part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite of products.  Azure requires complex credentials which may only be altered using Microsoft Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) provided the student has verifiable mobile or alternate email information as part of their electronic SIS record.  The SIS also requires complex credentials which must be changed upon first access and requires the student to have verifiable mobile or alternate email address to make changes.

Students can only access the LMS using a secure internet portal. All information within each LMS is stored off-site in locations with firewall, network, and physical security. Records of students' grades, transcripts, and other sensitive data are maintained electronically in the college's SIS and in paper form in secure storage in the Offices of Enrollment Services on each of the college’s campuses.  Electronic records are maintained in secure servers with strict access protocol managed by the District Office of Information Systems. All information stored in the college's SIS and in the Offices of Enrollment Services is subject to all applicable provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), commonly referred to as the Buckley Amendment.  For more information regarding your rights under FERPA, refer to the college catalog.

Charges Associated with Verification of Student Identity

Students who use approved off-site proctoring centers located at other colleges and in other states or countries may be assessed a testing fee for site utilization. It is the responsibility of the student to pay the testing center for any charges associated with proctored exams and verification of student identity.
