Public Law 93-380, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, requires that the university adopt guidelines concerning the right of a student to inspect his or her education records, and guidelines concerning the release of personally identifiable information to third parties. The act further provides that such a student has the right to a hearing in order to provide for the correction or deletion of inaccurate, misleading or otherwise inappropriate data. The act also provides that students be informed of the types of education records maintained by the university that are directly related to students.
Consistent with that act, this policy on student education records is established to insure that information contained in such records is treated in a responsible manner with due regard to the personal nature of the information.
