FERPA Annual Notification
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. An "eligible student" under FERPA is a student who is either 18 years of age or older or one who is enrolled in a postsecondary institution. Students' rights under FERPA include: 1) the right to inspect and review their education record, 2) the right to request amendment of their education record if they believe it is inaccurate or misleading, and, 3) the right to provide written consent before the University discloses personally identifiable information from a student's education record, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
More detailed information can be found on our FERPA page.
