Additional information about specific programs and services is available from the individual academic colleges and departments.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

In carrying out their assigned responsibilities, many offices at OSU collect and maintain information about students. Although these records belong to the university, both university policy and federal law accord student a number of rights concerning these records. The essence of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is to give a student the right to inspect his or her education records and to protect the privacy of these records.

 

Students have the right to inspect, review, and/or request an amendment to these records; consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information in these records; restrict disclosure of information designated as directory information that may be released without consent of the student; and file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education for alleged failure by OSU to comply with FERPA requirements.

 

The  OSU FERPA Policy Statement, with information and instructions for students, parents, faculty, and staff, is available on the website of the OSU Registrar’s Office.
