What are some of the student’s rights under FERPA?

  • The right to:
    • Review and inspect their education records.
    • Seek amendments to their education records.
    • Consent to the disclosure of education records.
    • Be notified of their rights under FERPA.
    • File a complaint with the Family Policy Compliance Office in Washington, D.C.
  • Privacy. Each student record is private. In other words, private information about one student cannot be discussed with another unless there is written permission to do so.
  • Appropriate measures should be taken to protect student records that are stored on personal computers, in file cabinets or other forms of storage.
  • Students should be encouraged to keep their Cardinal Card, passwords, and any other materials that contain their educational information secure.
