Code of Student Conduct



The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment) or FERPA is a Federal Law that helps protect the privacy of student education records. The Act provides students the right to inspect and review education records, the right to seek to amend those records, and the right to limit disclosure of information from the records. The intent of the legislation is to protect the rights of students and to ensure the privacy and accuracy of education records. The Act applies to all institutions that are recipients of federal aid administered by the Secretary of Education.  Students rights under FERPA begin when a student enrolls; has scheduled classes, has paid fees, and classes have begun.  University faculty and staff members may release information in a student’s educational record to appropriate University faculty and staff inly if their normal duties require such access and there is a legitimate educational interest.
