Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act

 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:

 

  • The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the university receives a request for access.

 

A student should submit to the registrar a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The university official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the university official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
