Privacy Act

FOIP

The Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection (FOIP) Act legally prohibits Residence Services from discussing the files of a student, who is 18 years or older, with anyone other than the student unless we have written authorization to do so, in accordance with the Act.

The AEC maintains official records of all students at the Centre, up to seven (7) years after graduation, and allow students legislated and reasonable access to authorized individuals in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Requirements. Copies of student records are made available to current and former students at a reasonable cost.

After seven (7) years, these records are reduced to include only the Enrolment Agreement, transcript, and a copy of the Diploma/Certificate, if issued, and are retained for a period of 55 years.

 

Records will contain student enrollment and account information such as:

• Enrollment agreement
• Enrolment application
• Student transcripts
• Financial records (including payment records, student loan documents, and any refund)
• Student dispute
• Dismissal information

All official records will be held through the AEC record management system and secured through a safe storage in an off-site back up. This is in compliance with privacy policies, and student record management, use, and retention policies that are consistent with the applicable provincial and federal protection of privacy legislation, as well as with registration and/or accreditation obligations. These policies apply to the collection, storage, and disclosure of students’ private information, as well as to ongoing business and operational record keeping and analytics.
