The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.

Under FERPA, students have the right to:

  • Inspect and review their education records maintained by the school.
  • Request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading.

Schools must have written permission from the student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, under some very specific conditions.
