The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, sometimes referred to as the Buckley Amendment, is a federal law that governs the sharing and privacy of student education records (including class schedules, test scores, grades, transcripts, etc.). While FERPA gives parents rights to access their children's education records through elementary and high school, those rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. This means that LeTourneau University must have your student's consent on file before academic records will be released to you.
