FERPA

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

Overview

FERPA (20 U.S.C. 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students."

Under FERPA, schools must generally provide:

  • access to their education records
  • an opportunity to seek to have the records amended
  • some control over the disclosure of information from the records

Schools are required to redact and protect personally identifiable information about students not designated as directory information and prevent disclosure of information without appropriate consent or conditions.
