FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS & PRIVACY ACT (F.E.R.P.A.)

General Information

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 is a general law that governs and protects your rights to your individual educational records. As a student over the age of 18 years or enrolled in a post-secondary institution, your primary rights under FERPA are:

  • Your right to review and inspect your educational records
  • Your rights to have your educational records amended or corrected
  • Your rights to control disclosure of certain portions of your educational records

Additional Information

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.

You can find more information about FERPA on the U.S. Department of Education’s website at: http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html or you may contact the U.S Department of Education at the address below:
