FERPA / FOIL
Freedom of Information Act
Application for Public Access to Records (PDF)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (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."
