The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) was established in order to protect the privacy of students with respect to education records; to establish students' rights to inspect and review their education records; and to provide students with an opportunity to have inaccurate or misleading information in their education records corrected.

To view the latest policy information on privacy of student data, please go to the Privacy of Student Records page on the UC Santa Cruz Office of the Registrar's web site.
