FERPA


Print Page



The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) afford student certain rights with respect to their educational records.
Review and Correction:
  • A student has the right to inspect and review his/her education records within 45 days of the day the institution receives a request for access. Students should submit to the Campus Registrar written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The school will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the Registrar, the student will be advised of the correct school official to whom the request should be addressed.
  • A student has the right to request the amendment of his/her education records that the student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Students should write the school official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the school will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
Disclosure of Educational Records:
  • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information (PII) contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
  • Generally, schools must have written consent from the student in order to release any information from a student’s education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR 99.31):
    • School officials with legitimate educational interest (including a contractor or volunteer outside of the school who performs an institutional service or function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from educational records);
    • Other schools to which a student is transferring;
    • Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
    • Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
    • Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
    • Accrediting organizations;
    • To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
    • Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
    • State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.
  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

    Family Policy Compliance Office
    Department of Education
    Independence Avenue, SW
    Washington, DC 20202-4605
