Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) deals with the education records of students, and their rights with respect to those records. Students have three main rights under FERPA: the right to inspect and review their education records, the right to a degree of control over information disclosures from their education records, and the right to request amendment of education records.

Education records are records which are 1) directly related to a student and 2) maintained by an institution or a party acting for the institution.

UA strives to protect student records as per FERPA guidelines.  All faculty and staff who have access to student records are required to complete an annual FERPA training.
