Confidentiality & FERPA

The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 identifies the rights of students and their families with respect to student educational records kept by institutions. As part of the requirements of FERPA, the University has a Policy on Confidentiality of Student Records to ensure that student record information, including grades, course schedule, and academic progress, remains private.

University Resources and Services

The Office of the University Registrar partners with several other offices across Penn State to deliver services, resources, and information related to academic records and policies, as well as enrollment and registration processes.
