Family Educational Rights and Privacy
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 - also called the Buckley Amendment - provides that colleges and schools may not release information about students or provide access to student records (with certain exceptions listed in the statute) without students’ written consent. This law makes it possible for students to examine their records by making an appointment with the Registrar and Director of Advising. Those who wish to see their student personnel records should contact the Dean of Students. Students who wish to challenge the contents of academic files should contact the Judiciary Board. Those who wish to contest student personnel records should contact the Judiciary Board.
