Student Privacy Rights

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, sets forth requirements regarding the privacy of student records. FERPA governs:

  • The release of education records maintained by an educational institution, and
  • The access to these records.

As a student you have the right to:

  • Inspect and review your education records.
  • Request amendment of your education records.
  • Limit disclosure of some personally identifiable information known as directory information.

If you would like to review your education records, then you may submit a written request to review your educational records to the registrar. An appointment will then be arranged for you to review your education records.
 
If you would like to amend your education records because you feel that something in your education records is inaccurate, then you may submit a written request to amend or remove educational records to the registrar. The request will be considered, and a notification of the decision will be made in writing to you.
 
If you would like to restrict the disclosure of directory information, please contact the Student Records Office.  You may fill out the Records Revision Form and mark "No" for the Release of Directory Information or you may send an e-mail from your Terra Student e-mail stating that you would like this change to RecordsDept@terra.edu. Your directory information will be excluded from any requests made by external organizations.

If you would like to give certain individuals the right to obtain specific student information such as attendance, grades or financial information then you must complete the FERPA Release form in your student account in Banner Self-Service.

Questions? Please contact us.

If you have any questions about your student privacy rights, please feel free to contact the Registrar. Call us at 866.AT.TERRA ext. 2405, or 419.559.2405. You can also email us at RecordsDept@terra.edu.
