Procedure - Public Information Requests

I. Montgomery Community College asks that public information requests be made using the Public Records Request Form found on the college’s website.

II. The request will then be reviewed to ensure the information requested is available and not restricted from public access. See Policy 3.3.1 Personnel Files and Policy 5.4.3 Student Records – FERPA.

III. There is no charge for examining a public record, but there is a copy charge of $0.10 per page for any copies the College makes for the person/organization requesting the record. In addition, if the information request is for something other than a readily available document, the College will charge for the time it takes a staff person to collect or prepare the information. This charge is based on the full labor cost of the person preparing the record. The College will provide an estimate of the costs for an extraordinary request prior to making the records available for inspection or release and allow the requestor the option of either agreeing to pay the charge or revising the request to narrow its nature or scope.
