For Additional Information

In conclusion, we have discussed student rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and university policies and procedures. We have also discussed when FERPA rights begin and end for a student, what is considered to be an education record, directory information, legitimate educational interest, exceptions under FERPA, and tips for preventing violations.

For additional information regarding FERPA, including the official university policy, please visit: If you have questions about FERPA, you can contact the following offices:

  • Director of Records and Advisement or Assistant Director of Records and Advisement
  • Vice President of Academic Administration
  • University legal counsel

It is important that we comply with FERPA because it is the law and it is essential for us to maintain the trust and respect of our students by protecting their student education records as an institution.
