The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of a student’s education records. All educational institutions that receive federal funding must comply with FERPA. Under FERPA, when a student turns 18 years of age or enrolls at a postsecondary institution at any age, all parental FERPA rights are transferred to the student. Students can authorize their confidential academic, financial aid, discipline, and student account information otherwise protected by FERPA to designated persons only. Students can fill out the FERPA Release of Confidential Information Form via OneStop.

If you have additional questions about FERPA, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 931-221-7150.
