Confidentiality of Student Records & FERPA
The University, in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of student education records and monitoring the release of information from those records. Faculty and staff with access to student education records have a legal responsibility to protect the privacy of students by using information only for legitimate educational reasons to instruct, advise, or otherwise assist students. FERPA also assures certain rights to students regarding their education records. These rights do not transfer to parents, guardians, spouses, or other family members without the express written permission of the student.
