FERPA: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) Overview

FERPA 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, also known as the Buckley Amendment, gives students to right to inspect and review their education records to ensure the accuracy of their contents.

Under federal law, colleges are not allowed to release any information to parents or others about a student’s educational record or disciplinary proceedings without the written consent of the student.

Marymount Manhattan College is committed to the confidentiality and protection of student education records by adhering to the FERPA guidelines.

FERPA requires that the College provide notification annually to students of their rights under FERPA. Marymount Manhattan College will inform students of these guidelines and of their rights under FERPA and the Department of Education’s FERPA regulations. The annual notification includes the rights outlined below:
