Privacy of Records
FERPA – Right to Privacy
What is FERPA? FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. This legislation protects the privacy of your student records and regulates how information is utilized. Release of student records at Oregon State University is bound by the federal law (FERPA), the Oregon Revised Statutes, and by the Oregon Administrative Rules. Take the FERPA tutorial to learn more.
Review the Student Records - Right to Privacy information in the catalog to learn more about the details of FERPA, the Solomon Amendment, and the use of social security numbers.
NO information may be released about students who have established confidentiality of their records.
Students may restrict the release of their student information by completing a Confidentiality Restriction form. The Confidentiality Restriction prevents employees of OSU from providing any information, directory or confidential, to anyone. When a confidentiality restriction is in place we can only discuss a student’s record with the student if they are there in person with picture identification.
