Student Responsibilities and Rights

Privacy of Student Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 was designed to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their educational records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students have the right to file complaints with the Family Policy Compliance Office, US Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20202-5920, concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the act. Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred to the Undergraduate Dean’s Office.
