The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) Information for Parents
FERPA is a federal regulation that deals specifically with the education records of students who attend a post-secondary institution, such as Yavapai College. It provides the following rights to the student:
- Right to inspect and review education records
- Right to seek to amend education records
Yavapai College is conservative in our treatment of student records within the parameters of FERPA:
- Written requests to disclose student records must include the student’s signature. (Request for an official transcript, for example.)
What does all of this mean to parents? The best scenario is for the student to provide information to parents.
