Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 establishes the rights of students with regard to educational records. The act makes provision for inspection and review of educational records by the students and requires, in most instances, prior consent from the student for disclosure of such records to third parties. The consent must be in writing, signed and dated by the student, and include the names of the parties to whom such records can be accessed. The Act applies to all persons formerly and currently enrolled at an educational institution. Access to educational records does not give permission to make changes to the student’s record.

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to provide access to your records to a specific individual(s) (i.e parent, spouse, etc.) please complete the following form and return it to your local Registrar’s Office. Without this form, we will not be able to discuss records with anyone other than the student themselves.
