Family Educational Rights Privacy Act (FERPA)

Federal law prohibits all educational institutions administered under the Department of Education to disclose personally identifiable information derived from education records. Per the US Department of Education website:

Once a student reaches 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, he or she becomes an “eligible student,” and all rights formerly given to parents under FERPA transfer to the student. The eligible student has the right to have access to his or her education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, the right to have control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records, and the right to file a complaint with the Department. The term “education records” is defined as those records that contain information directly related to a student and which are maintained by an educational agency or institution or by a party acting for the agency or institution.

Under FERPA, a school may not generally disclose personally identifiable information from an eligible student’s records to a third party unless the eligible student has provided written consent.
