Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (commonly referred to as “FERPA”) is designed to protect the confidentiality of the records that educational institutions maintain on their students and to give students access to their records to assure the accuracy of the content. The act affords students certain rights with respect to their education records and places requirements on how institutions and employees manage those records. All employees at Hamilton are required to be aware of and abide by FERPA.
