The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of students' educational records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
The University does not permit access to, or the release of, educational records without written consent of the student.
Annual notification of student rights under FERPA will appear in Adelphi's student handbook.
Get more information about FERPA from the U.S. Department of Education.
