What is FERPA?
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, or FERPA, governs
the privacy of student records. It regulates access to and the release
of education records maintained by all educational institutions,
including DePaul. It states:
- DePaul students must be
permitted to inspect their own educational records and request
amendments to correct errors (limitations apply).
- Students have the right to limit the type of information that can be disclosed.
- DePaul officials are not permitted to disclose personally
identifiable information about students nor permit inspection of their
records without written consent except as allowed by the Act.
