Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The university adheres to a federal law called the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (also called FERPA or the Buckley Amendment) that sets privacy standards for student educational records and requires institutions to publish a compliance statement, including a statement of related institutional policies. Carnegie Mellon has created a brochure for parents which provides detailed information about FERPA.
