FERPA is an acronym for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, also known as the Buckley Amendment. This federal enactment establishes the legal parameters governing access to and release of student educational records. Every year, The University of Tennessee Health Science Center informs students of their rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. UT Health Science Center complies with this federal statute. Any educational institution or educational administrative service that receives funds from the United States Secretary of Education must comply with the terms set forth in FERPA.
