Protection of privacy of information (confidentiality of student records)?
Meredith College, in accordance the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (i.e., the Buckley Amendment) assures the confidentiality of student educational records. FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, is a federal law requiring Meredith College to protect the confidentiality of student educational records. Meredith College has adopted the policies to comply with the law, to inform students of their privacy rights, and to maintain the protection of student educational records. However, student educational records may be released without the student’s consent to school officials who have a legitimate educational interest to access the records, and the College may disclose information from a student’s educational records to either individual or entities permitted under applicable federal and state law. Information on confidentiality of records is on page 13 of the 2011-2012 Graduate School Catalogue, available on line at Graduate Catalogue.
Access to personal filesStudents have the right under FERPA to inspect and review their education records and to appeal to the appropriate office to have any incorrect information corrected. Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office concerning alleged failures by Meredith to comply with the Act. To review your student files, contact the Office of the Registrar 121 Johnson Hall, during their office hours. Students must show student ID to review their files. Letters of recommendation or other materials to which the student has waived her rights will not be available for review by the student.
