Student/Faculty

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) , commonly known as the “Buckley Amendment”, prohibits schools from releasing student records (transcripts, recommendations, financial information) without the authorization of the student or parent. FERPA only covers educational records, so information known to school authorities that is not part of a record is not covered.
