Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

II. Scope and Overview

This policy applies to all student education records that are subject to FERPA. FERPA gives students four basic rights:
1. The right to review their education records
2. The right to amend their education records
3. The right to limit disclosure of personally identifiable information (Directory Information)
4. The right to notify the Department of Education concerning an academic institution's failure to comply with FERPA regulations

FERPA provides for confidentiality of student records; however, FERPA allows the institution to release basic identification information (Directory Information) of students without the consent of the individual. Students are notified of their FERPA rights and the procedures for limiting disclosure of Directory Information via e-mail, orientation for new students, and on UTC's website.
