Rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include the following:
• The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the school receives a request for access. Students should submit to the Registrar a written request identifying the record(s) they wish to inspect.
• The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the school to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write to the Registrar’s office, clearly identifying the part of the record they want changed, and specifying why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the school will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
• The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities with school operations and functions.
• Upon request, LAAFA discloses education records to officials of another school, in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
• The right to file a complaint with the U. S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by LAAFA to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:
Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, S.W.
