The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERFA or the Buckley Amendment) affords students certain privacy rights regarding their education records. Those rights are summarized below.
FERPA protects the privacy of all education records, in any medium, maintained by Louisiana State University of Alexandria. All student education records, including documents about students contained in computer databases, are protected. Generally, only directory information may be released to third parties, including parents of dependent or independent students, without the student's written consent.
