In compliance with the “Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974” (FERPA), the following constitutes the institution’s policy on providing appropriate access to educational records, while protecting their confidentiality.
Wichita State University accords all rights under the law to students. Those rights are: 1) the right to inspect and review the student’s education records; 2) the right to request the amendment of the student’s education records to ensure that they are not inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy or other rights; 3) the right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent; 4) the right to file with the U.S. Department of Education a complaint concerning alleged failures by Wichita State University to comply with the requirements of FERPA; and 5) the right to obtain a copy of Wichita State University’s student records policy. A complete copy of the policy may be found in the Wichita State Catalog.
Students will be notified of their FERPA rights by publication in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs.
