Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, both financial and academic. For the student’s protection, FERPA limits the release of certain student record information without the student’s explicit consent. However, the law also considers some student information to be Directory Information and is considered public. A student is covered by FERPA at the time of his/her enrollment in courses at the seminary.
Directory Information includes: name, address, e-mail address, phone number, dates of enrollment, enrollment status, major, program, academic awards and honors, and degrees received. This means Grace School of Theology can release this information to anyone who requests it. You have the opportunity to suppress parts or all of this information from public release.
