Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 as amended requires that you be advised of your rights concerning your education records and of certain categories of public information which the university has designated “directory information.” This information will help you learn more about what your rights are, provide your parents with a resource to help them understand FERPA and assist you in understanding what UWM faculty and staff are required to do to protect your privacy.

For detailed information about FERPA and related UWM Policies and Processes please view our FERPA Manual.
