FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal legislation ordained in 1974 to govern student records. It gives students the right to access their own educational records and limits, for privacy reasons, the release of those same records to anyone other than the student and/or the student’s appointee. FERPA is applicable to all current and former students of the University. The bottom line is that Institutions have a legal mandate to protect student’s data by complying with FERPA.

Confidentiality: CSUMB faculty and staff must protect the privacy of student education records and must not disclose personally identifiable information about a student or permit review of the student’s records without his/her written consent unless such action is permitted by FERPA.
