Question

Q: What is FERPA - Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974?

Answer

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.) 

The Kennesaw Library System adheres to this Privacy Act concerning student library records.

Third Party Disclosures are prohibited by FERPA without the written consent of the student. Any persons other than the student are defined as Third Party, including parents, spouses, and employers. All educational officials are required to secure written permission prior to the release of any academic record information.

You can find more information about FERPA for students on the KSU Registrar's website. Information about FERPA for parents can be be found on the U.S. Department of Education website.
