The purpose of this student records policy is to establish rules and procedures that appropriately implement the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), 20 U.S.C. §1232g. Western Washington University is committed to safeguarding appropriate access to student education records as well as maintaining individual student privacy. The university records officer works to ensure that information contained in student records is treated responsibly with due regard to its personal nature, and for the students', university's and community's needs. Questions regarding this policy should be addressed to the university records officer.
(1) Generally, students have the right to review and copy their education records. Students also have the right to challenge the content of, release of, or denial of access to their education records.
(2) The university will normally not permit access to the public without a student's permission; some exceptions exist as detailed in this policy.
(3) The university may release directory information concerning a student unless the student requests in writing that it not be released.
