We want to take this opportunity to provide you with a summary of your rights under The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the federal law that governs release of and access to student education records. Please view Understanding FERPA, a DePaul Central Learning Center video for information and instructions.
Your FERPA rights include:
1. The right to inspect and review your education record within 45 days after the university receives a request for access. If you want to review your record, contact the university office that maintains the record to make appropriate arrangements.
2. The right to request an amendment of your education record if you believe it is inaccurate or misleading. If you feel there is an error in your record, you should submit a statement to the university official responsible for the record, clearly identifying the part of the record you want changed and why you believe it is inaccurate or misleading. That office will notify you of their decision and advise you regarding appropriate steps if you do not agree with the decision.
3. The right to provide written consent before DePaul discloses personally identifiable information contained in your education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. Some examples include:
