Student Education Records (FERPA)

Records that contain information directly related to a student and that are maintained by the University of Michigan or by a person acting for the university. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) governs release of, and access to, student education records. Directory information about a student is not regulated by FERPA and can be released by the university without the student's permission. Students can request non-disclosure from the U-M Registrar's Office.
