Disciplinary FERPA Release

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) is a 1974 federal law also known as the Buckley Amendment. Although FERPA contains exceptions for the release of "directory information" without a student's prior written consent, students have the right to request that even such directory information not be disclosed.

FERPA gives students the right to do the following:

  • Control the disclosure of their education records to others
  • Inspect and review their own education records
  • Challenge the content of their education record

The Office of Community Standards uses a separate Disciplinary FERPA waiver. Please note that the general university FERPA waiver that applies to grades and financial information does not apply to the Community Standards office.
