FERPA Guidelines

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is the federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.

Aquinas College students have the right to review the accuracy of information kept in their cumulative file by the Registrar upon written request.

Student records will not be made available to unauthorized persons, nor will they be given to any institution or individual without the written permission of the student. This includes parents, spouses, and family members. To view a description or Aquinas College Confidentiality of Student Records and Disclosure of Education Records, please see the Aquinas College Student Handbook.

A copy of the FERPA release form can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar, or you may download it here: Consent to Release Education Records (FERPA Release Form)

Any Aquinas College student who believes his or her FERPA rights have been violated can request a meeting with the Vice President for Academics by submitting the FERPA Violation Complaint Form.

If the student is not satisfied with the results of this hearing, he can file a complaint letter with the Family Policy Compliance Office in Washington, D.C.

To request non-release of your student directory information, submit the Request for Non-Release of Directory Information.
