The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. (An "eligible student" under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution at any age.) These rights include:

1. 有权在华盛顿之日起45天内检查和审查学生的教育记录 & 杰斐逊学院(以下简称“W&J") receives a request for access. 学生应向注册主任提交, dean, head of the academic department, [or other appropriate official,一份书面请求,注明学生希望查看的记录. The school official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. 如果提交申请的学校官员没有保存这些记录, 该官员应告知该学生应向其提出请求的正确官员.

2. 要求修改学生认为不准确的教育记录的权利, misleading, 或以其他方式侵犯学生在FERPA下的隐私权.

A student who wishes to ask the school to amend a record should write the school official responsible for the record, 清楚地指出学生想要更改的记录部分, 并说明为什么要更改它.

If W&J决定不按要求修改记录,W&J will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing re­garding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.

3. 有权提供书面同意前W&J公开了学生教育记录中的个人身份信息(PII), 除非FERPA在未经同意的情况下授权披露.

W&J discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. 一名学校官员通常包括W&J in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person serving on the board of trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, 比如纪律委员会或申诉委员会. 学校官员也可能包括W以外的志愿者或承包商&J who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, 或者是催收代理人,或者是一个学生自愿协助另一个学校官员完成他或她的任务. A school official typically has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for W&J.

Upon request, the school also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
