Access to Records

Need to Know about FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. Regardless of the age of the student, once a student enters post secondary education (college) this Federal law protects the rights of the student.  Record information will be disclosed to family members only if a written consent by the student is received in person at the Running Start office.

Thank you – It’s the law.
