As colleges and universities know, higher education institutions have a duty to protect the confidentiality of student records, codified in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), 20 U.S.C. § 1232g.  When such documents are requested in the course of litigation, FERPA dictates the processes and standards a school must apply in response.  The discussion that follows answers the following questions:

  • When if ever must a school provide student information to a third party during litigation?
  • May the student object to the release of their information, and if so, how?
  • What notice must a school give a student before providing student information to a third party?In particular,
  • How much advance notice must the student receive?
  • What methods of notice are adequate?
  • What information must the notice contain?
