Privacy Rights / FERPA

Marymount California University adheres closely to the guidelines establish by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act – a federal legislation established to regulate access and maintenance of student educational records.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records, including the right to inspect their education records, request an amendment of the records that the student believes are inaccurate, and the right to control disclosures of their records except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. It is important to note that all rights to access move to the student when that student is in a post-secondary education institution; parents, spouses, and significant others have no inherent right to access to student educational records.

Educational records for the most part include, with certain exceptions, all records maintained in any medium, which can identify the student.
