Welcome to FERPA

FERPA is a Federal Law, also known as the Buckley amendment. It protects the privacy of a student's educational records. The law applies to all educational agencies or institutions that receive funds under any program administered by the Secretary of Education.

This law gives students certain rights:

  1. The right to inspect, review, and seek to amend their educational records
  2. The right to file a complaint with the Family Compliance Office in Washington, DC
  3. The right to have directory information withheld
  4. The right to consent to the disclosure of educational records
