Student records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), these are federal regulations which assign rights to students and responsibilities to educational institutions regarding students’ education records. The Act governs the maintenance and release of information from those records. The information provided on this web site is for informational purposes only. Questions should be referred to the Registrar’s Office at 541-962-3607 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

According to FERPA, a student is an individual who is enrolled in and actually attends an educational institution. The regulations provide that attendance includes attendance in person or via any other modality. Individuals who are accepted to an educational institution, but do not attend any classes, are not “students” for purposes of FERPA.

Directory Information Term defined under FERPA; which allows certain information about students to be published or released by the institution without consent of the student.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) Federal law governing access to records maintained by educational institutions and the release of information from those records. FERPA requires the institution to send a notice to enrolled students annually.
The Right to Inspect and Review Records Students have the right to inspect and review their education records within 45 days after the day EOU receives a request for access. A student should submit to the registrar a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the registrar, the registrar shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
Confidential Records A students records can be marked as confidential. If records are marked as confidential they cannot be released to anyone, even the student who owns the records. A student identified as confidential will not show on a published deans list or other published material. If you need to mark you records as confidential, or remove the confidential flag from your record, please use this form Update Confidential Status Form.
FERPA prohibits EOU from giving parents access to student information except with the student’s voluntary written consent. EOU may release student information to parents only with the written consent of the student – regardless of the student’s age, or whether the student is a legal dependent of the parent, or whether the parent pays the student’s tuition and school expenses.
**FERPA does not allow us to give information such as grades or GPA over the phone or via e-mail, even to the student.
