Family Educational Rights

Notice to Students of Privacy Rights

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law governing access to student education records. FERPA stipulates conditions for release of information from education records and affords students the opportunity to review and seek revision of those records. In addition, the federal law states: (a) that a written institutional policy must be established; and (b) that a statement of adopted procedures covering the privacy rights of students must be made available. The law provides that the institution will maintain the confidentiality of student education records. Central Washington University (CWU) accords all the rights provided by the law, and reserves for itself the right to use and release student education records under the conditions specified by the law.

For the complete policy, please see policy # CWUP 2-20-070 at:

all policies and procedures are regularly updated by the Office of the President.
