The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of education records. It also provides guidelines for properly releasing student information. FERPA applies to all U.S. educational agencies and institutions that receive funding under any program administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA Disposal


Schools and universities collect large amounts of student information to provide quality education and some information, like student transcripts, may be retained indefinitely. Other information may need to be preserved for a specific period to comply with legal or school requirements then will need to be securely destroyed once the retention period has been reached. A large amount of student information, some of which may still contain private information, may need to be destroyed right away due to irrelevance. Secure shredding can ensure this is done in a way that complies with laws and regulations.
