Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law regarding the privacy of student records and the obligations of the institution, primarily in the areas of release of records and the access provided to these records.

“Education records” that fall under this policy include such things as graded papers, exams, transcripts, notes from a conversation with or about a student that are placed in a student’s file for others in the department to reference.

FERPA ensures that student rights and privacy are protected.

For more information about FERPA, you can review the full manual and informational guide.

The following are FERPA-related services offered by the Office of the Registrar:
