Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the     privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S.     Department of Education.

    FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's 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."
