The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) was implemented in 1974 as a federal law to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA also gives students the right to review their education records, seek to amend inaccurate information in their records, and provide consent for the disclosure of their records. This law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
According to FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), NOBTS & Leavell College ensures proper processing of students’ personally identifiable information (PII). No individual without legitimate official educational or legal interests may access a student’s PII without prior written consent from the student. In regard to his or her personally identifiable information, the student retains the following rights:
