FERPA

For details of FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) please see below.

Anglia Ruskin University receives funds under an applicable programme of the US Department of Education programme therefore it is bound by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  For more information on this act, please click on the following link http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (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."

  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school.
  • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading.
  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, there are certain conditions under which, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent.
