FERPA & Privacy

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and UC Policies Applying to the Disclosure of Information from Student Records restrict the disclosure of information from student records. 

The Office of the Registrar provides a summary of the key concepts that faculty and staff should know about privacy of student records.  This training handout provides additional details.

A sample form is available for students to consent to disclosure of information from their student records.

FERPA training is available online at the UC Learning Center.  Search for "FERPA".

Watch a recording of the Office of the Registrar's FERPA training session on January 17, 2013.

For further information, the Office of the President has prepared a useful guide to FERPA called FERPA 101.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar if you have questions about FERPA or privacy of student records.

Additional information is available about FERPA.  A campus process exists to review student complaints.
