Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act

Persons who have been convicted of an offense against a minor, or a sexually violent offense, are
required by law to register with the Sheriff’s Department in the County and/or State where they
reside. The law also requires that registered sex offenders must provide notice to an institution of
higher education (post-secondary) that they have intentions to enroll as a student, if conditions
allow. Registered sex offenders who are attending in person, or located on college owned property
and/or premises, without prior notification, and/or situational approval, will be in violation of NC
G.S.14-208.18 and may be criminally charged.

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act enacted on October 28, 2000, is a federal law that requires
all colleges to issue a statement advising the campus community where information on registered
sex offenders who are enrolled, employed or volunteering at Cape Fear Community College can
be obtained.

Notifications of registered sex offenders are public knowledge and may be found online at:
• North Carolina Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry – NC Sex Offender Registry
• U.S. Department of Justice, National Sex Offender Public Website – National Sex Offender Registry
