FERPA

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records in institutions that receive funding from the US Department of Education.

Once a student turns eighteen, or attends school beyond secondary school, the rights of access to the student’s records transfer to the student. All academic information regarding your college student goes directly to the student, unless the student has given specific, written permission to release that information to someone else.

In accordance with section 99.7 of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Benedict College has designated certain items as Directory Information. At Benedict College, these items are as follows:

  • Name
  • Dates of Attendance
  • College or School
  • Classification
  • Primary Program of Study
  • Full-time or Part-time Status
  • Degree(s) Awarded Including Dates
  • University Email Address
  • City, State, and Zip Code Associated with a Student’s Permanent address
