FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law administered by the Department (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), affords parents and “eligible students” (students who are at least 18 years old, or, in attendance at a postsecondary institution at any age) certain rights with respect to education records, such as the right to consent to the disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) from the education records (except in certain circumstances).
