FERPA information from MSU

FERPA in Higher Education "The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records and gives parents certain rights with respect to their student’s educational records.  These rights transfer to the student at age 18. FERPA applies to all students, not just those with disabilities" (PEATC Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center).
