• The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, commonly referred to as FERPA or the Buckley amendment, is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of a student’s educational record. FERPA applies to all educational agencies or institutions that receive federal funding for any program administered by the Secretary of Education. FERPA also applies to private entities that contract to perform services for the University that it would otherwise undertake to perform on its own; in such cases, the private entity must observe the same FERPA protections applicable to the University.
  • At Rutgers University, records, including progress, deficiencies, and grades may be released to parents only if they have been given access by the student, regardless of the age or tax status of the student. Students who wish to waive parts of this policy and allow their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) to have more access to their information may do so via the myGuest Dashboard.
