Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

All student records are kept in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. A student may request access to his or her individual records and may challenge the accuracy of the record or the appropriateness of its retention. A student’s consent (regardless of the age of the student) is needed for the release of records covered by the act. Student consent is not required for release of records to agencies entitled to access under the provisions of the act, e.g., campus officials, other schools, federal educational and auditing officers, and requests in connection with the application or receipt of financial aid.
