FERPA protects the privacy of student educational records, establishes a student’s right to inspect and review their academic records and provides guidelines for correcting inaccurate and misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Generally, only directory information pertaining to a student’s records can be released to any third party without written authorization of the student, judicial order or a lawfully issued subpoena.
