Disciplinary Records and FERPA

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) is a 1974 federal law also known as the Buckley Amendment. Although FERPA contains exceptions for the release of "directory information" without a student's prior written consent, students have the right to request that even such directory information not be disclosed. 


FERPA gives students the right to do the following:

  • Control the disclosure of their education records to others 
  • Inspect and review their own education records 
  • Challenge the content of their education records 

The Office of Community Standards uses a separate Disciplinary FERPA waiver. Please note the Student Proxy Form that applies to grades and financial information does not apply to the Office of Community Standards.
