The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

Northark complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their educational records. These rights include:

  • The right to inspect and review the student’s education record within 45 days of the day the College receives a written request for access.
  • The right to request an amendment to the student’s education record when the student believes the record is inaccurate, misleading or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.
  • The right to have some control over the disclosure of information from education records.
  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
