FERPA and Student Records Release

The 1974 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law (20 USC 1232g) that protects the privacy of a student’s educational records. FERPA applies to all educational institutions receiving funds from the United States Department of Education, from kindergarten through university level. Under FERPA, the Dean of Students Office may not share the contents of a student’s education record with anyone other than the student unless the student provides written consent to do so, or under a recognized exception.

Exceptions under FERPA include, but are not limited to, a health or safety emergency or an educational need to know.

A student who is working with the DOS office and is wishing to release some or all of their DOS educational record to another person, or a student wishing to allow DOS to communicate with another person regarding that student's interactions with DOS and/or that student's academics, must sign a release with DOS. Please email to request the FEPRA release form.
