In 1974, Congress passed the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (sometimes called the Buckley Amendment.) The act grants specific rights to students:

  • The right to inspect and review their educational records

  • The right to request amendment of the educational records and in some cases append a statement to the records

  • The right to consent to disclosure of their records

  • The right to prevent release of directory information

  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Dept. of Education
