Student Privacy Rights (FERPA)
FERPA – the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended – is a federal law that governs the privacy of student educational records, access to those records, and disclosure of information from them. Learn about FERPA and student privacy at UW-Madison or on the Department of Education website.
