FERPA stands for Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (sometimes called the Buckley Amendment).  Passed by Congress in 1974, the Act grants four specific rights to students.

  • the right to inspect the information that the institution is keeping on the student.

  • the right to seek amendment to those records and in certain cases append a statement to the record.

  • the right to consent to disclosure of his/her records.

  • the right to file a complaint with the FERPA Office in Washington.
