What is FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords you, as a student, the right to have access to your education records, the right to seek to have your records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your education records.  The FERPA statute is found at 20 U.S.C. § 1232(g) and the FERPA regulations are found at 34 CFR Part 99.
