Sexual Offender Registration

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed by, institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offenders Act. The Federal law requires state law enforcement agencies in Ohio to provide Wilmington College with a list of registered sex offenders who have indicated that they are either enrolled, employed or carry on a vocation at Wilmington College.

Wilmington College is required to inform the campus community that a registration list of sex offenders will be maintained and available from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation at:

Wilmington College is located in Clinton County and its zip code is 45177.

The CSCPA further amends the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) to clarify that nothing in the Act can prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders.
