Abridged FERPA Policy
The following is an abridged version of the University FERPA policy, which can be read in full on the University Policies website.
I. Scope of the Act
The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, and its implementing federal regulations affords to persons who are currently, or were formerly, in attendance at the University as registered students a right of access to their "educational records" that contain information directly related to such persons.
The Act also restricts the persons to whom the University may disclose a student's education records without the student's written permission.
III. Access by or Release to Others
The University will not generally permit access to, or release of, educational records or personally identifiable information contained therein to any party without the written consent of the student.
b. Release with the Student's Consent
Upon written consent or request by a student, the University will release information from the student's educational records to third parties. The student should make a request for such release to the department or office having custody of the record involved. The University may impose a charge for copying a student's records in connection with such release.
