FERPA - Tutorial 03

The primary rights protected under FERPA are:
  • Students' rights to review and inspect their educational records within 45 days of the date of a request
  • Students' rights to have their educational records amended or corrected;
  • Students' rights to control disclosure of certain portions of their educational records.
Educational Records are all the records maintained by the University of Wisconsin-Parkside about individual students, with seven exceptions:
  • Personal notes from UW-Parkside faculty and staff (if they are shared with anyone though, then they become educational records)
  • Employment records
  • Medical and counseling records used solely for treatment
  • Campus Police records
  • Financial records of a parent or spouse
  • Confidential letters and statements of recommendation placed in their records before January 1, 1975
  • Confidential letters and statements of recommendation for admissions, employment or honorary recognition placed in their records after January 1, 1975, for which they have waived the right to inspect and review
