FAMILY EDUCATION RIGHTS & PRIVACY ACT (FERPA)

Academia Medical Institute maintains compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which provides

  • Protection of the privacy of student educational records
  • The right of students to inspect and review their academic records
  • Guidelines for correcting inaccurate and/or misleading data through informal and formal hearings

In compliance with the provisions of FERPA, Academia Medical Institute of Nursing representatives are restricted from providing certain student information to anyone other than the student (regardless of who is paying the tuition bill). Any student who wishes to permit other individuals’ access to their education records may do so by submitting a written authorization to the Student Services Office.

A separate form must be signed for each individual to whom the student wishes to grant access. Upon receipt of the signed authorization form, Academia Medical Institute may discuss student information with the designated individual.
