Student Privacy / FERPA

Student education records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law that applies to schools, colleges and universities. Students who are enrolled at Case Western Reserve University have the right to prevent disclosure of their educational records. Under FERPA, the university may not release personally identifiable student records to a third party, with certain specific exceptions, unless the third party has requested the information in writing and the student has consented to the release in writing.

There are additional guidelines that are helpful for parents. For more information, please visit the academic records section of the university registrar's web site.
