Challenging Student Records Issues in Higher Education: Beyond the Basics

College and university administrators frequently encounter the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). This federal statute governs disclosure of education records and personally identifiable information. Although colleges and university administrators often understand that they must comply with FERPA and know its basic requirements, they often have questions on how to address this law in certain challenging situations, including disclosures of information in health or safety emergencies, disclosure of records pertaining to multiple students, FERPA’s interaction with Title IX, and a student’s right to seek amendment of such records. Mishandling of such issues may lead to complaints to the Department of Education, and such violations of FERPA can lead to federal funding being withheld from a higher education institution.
