FERPA for Students

CSULB complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) which affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) also known as the “Buckley Amendment,” was established to protect the privacy of students. The primary rights of students under FERPA include:

  • The right to inspect and review educational records.
  • The right to seek to amend educational records.
  • The right to have some control over the disclosure of information from educational records.

The purpose of the Student Records Procedures is to ensure that the campus community is aware of, and complies with, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy regulations (FERPA), Statute: 20 U.S.C. 1232g; Regulations: 34 C.F.R. Part 99.
