The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a law passed in 1974 that oversees who can access a person's educational information and related records. In part, the law helps give current and former students the right to a certain level of privacy when it comes to their educational information. Institutions may need prior consent to divulge certain information about a person's educational history or records.
