Notification of Rights under FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

 

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students." These rights include:

 

(1) The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the Institute receives a request for access. A student should submit to the Director of Education a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The Director of Education will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected

 

(2) The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA. A student who wishes to ask the Institute to amend a record should write the Director of Education, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the Institute decides not to amend the record as requested, the Director of Education will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.

 

(3) The right to provide written consent before the Institute discloses personally identifiable information from the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. The Institute discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the Institute in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position; a person or company with whom the Institute has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using Institute employees or officials (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Advisory Committee; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the Institute.

 

(4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the Institute to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:

 

Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202-5901
