FERPA

FERPA is a United States federal law that protects the privacy of students in certain educational records maintained by an educational agency, an academic institution, or a party acting for an educational agency or academic institution. The law applies to all academic institutions that receive funds from a Department of Education program. Rights under FERPA transfer from the parents of a student to the student when the student turns 18 years of age or enrolls in school beyond the high school level.

Is there a FERPA Certification?

There currently is not a certification program approved by the federal government that assesses third party-compliance with FERPA. Academic institutions must perform their own assessments to determine whether a third-party product or service affects their compliance.
