It stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, and it protects your rights and privacy when it comes to your records. Virginia Tech complies with FERPA, so be sure to authorize release of information via the FERPA disclosure web form available on Hokie SPA if you want anyone other than yourself to have access to your educational records and student account. Your family member must have your student ID number and their assigned FERPA passcode to contact our office with questions.
