FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS & PRIVACY ACT (F.E.R.P.A.)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as the Buckley Amendment, helps protect the privacy of student records. The Act provides for the right to inspect and review education records, the right to seek to amend those records and to limit disclosure of information from the records. The Act applies to all institutions that are the recipients of federal funding.

FERPA coverage includes records, files, documents, and data directly related to students. The same principles of confidentiality must be applied to electronic data and paper documents.
