Student Rights/FERPA Policies

FERPA is the United States federal law that protects student records privacy and provides for review and disclosure rights.  Please review the information linked below, to help you understand FERPA and what it means to you. These pages outline student rights under FERPA to review educational records and to allow or restrict access to third parties.
