The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students." 

For more information please see FERPA Overview on our website.
