FERPA: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and federal regulations (34 CFR Part 99), is a Federal law.

FERPA gives the right to students, enrolled at an educational institution, to:

  • Inspect, review and request amendments to errors in their "Education Records"; and
  • Give their consent, before their Education Records are used or disclosed, unless a specific FERPA exception applies.

FERPA contains specific exceptions which allow the institution to use or disclose an Education Record, without the student's consent.
