What is FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA applies to all educational agencies and institutions that receive funding under any program administered by the Department of Education. As a recipient of federal funding, Cleveland Community College is obligated to comply with FERPA. The College limits the release of personally identifiable information, other than directory information, without explicit student consent.
