The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records. This law applies to all schools receiving funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. Ownership of educational records transfer from the parents to the student upon enrollment in a post-secondary institution or when the student reaches the age of 18.
