FERPA Concern Report Form

It is the policy of Boise State University to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment) is a federal law that limits the amount of information that can be released about students without their specific written permission.

It is the responsibility of the university to protect student records. Employment at Boise State University requires compliance with the policies of Boise State University; the rules, regulations, and procedures of the Idaho State Board of Education; and all local, state, and federal laws. Faculty and staff are required to review FERPA and sign a FERPA CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT. The FERPA Confidentiality Agreement is completed online as part of the training.

If you have a concern about the application of FERPA in a personal interaction, classroom or office environment or university activity/event, you have the right to file a concern with the university.
