A. Policy Statements

NMSU respects its students’ right to privacy as it relates to their educational records. The administration shall adopt rules and procedures in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (“FERPA”). FERPA generally provides that students’ educational records will be maintained confidentially as private records, except as otherwise provided in the Act; that students and eligible parents may access and review the student’s individual educational records; and that the university provide a process by which the educational record may be amended or supplemented.
