FERPA Header

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of a student’s educational records. It applies to schools receiving funds through the U.S. Department of Education. Once a student enters college, or turns 18 years old, the parental rights under FERPA transfer to the student. Information from his/her student record is typically not shared unless the student gives written permission or it is a special case, such as a health or safety emergency.
