The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as FERPA or the Buckley Amendment, is a general law (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) that protects the privacy of student educational records and controls access to them.

Under FERPA, students have the right to:

  • Annual notification of their privacy rights.
  • Inspect and review their education records.
  • Request an amendment to their educational records where appropriate to ensure accuracy.
  • Limit disclosure of their education records without prior written consent, with the exception of directory information allowed by FERPA.
  • File a complaint with the US Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the University to comply with the requirements of FERPA.

This information is made available annually to students in the Student Code of Conduct, Policies and Procedures and can also be viewed on the Salisbury University Web site.

Salisbury University complies with FERPA through the establishment of this policy and the following processes.
