Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords students the right to have access to their education records, the right to seek to have their records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from their education records.  Only information that is considered “directory information” may be shared with anyone other than the student.  Directory information does NOT include a student’s social security number.  Except for directory information, MIAD must have a student’s written consent to release their personal, academic, and financial information to anyone except the student, regardless of age. Grades, disciplinary history and action, health concerns, remaining account balances, and meal plan information are considered FERPA protected information and require a student’s written consent to release. 

Exceptions to FERPA are allowed in life-threatening situations.

Please see our full FERPA policy.
