Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA applies to educational institutions and requires the following:
- Students at postsecondary institutions must be permitted to inspect and seek amendment to their education records.
- School officials may not release personally identifiable information associated with a student’s record (e.g., class schedule, GPA, Social Security number) without the student’s written permission. However, directory information can be released unless you request otherwise.
- Institutions must ensure that all faculty and staff members are in compliance with this Federal regulation.
