Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA, also known as the Buckley Amendment) was passed by Congress in 1974 to protect the confidentiality of students’ records and information.

Hope College’s policy on student records incorporates the rights guaranteed by FERPA. Students are notified of their FERPA rights annually through publication of the rights in the college catalog and the student handbook.


Questions about FERPA policy as it relates to Hope College should be directed to the Office of the Registrar, 141 East 12th Street, Holland, MI 49423,, or 616.395.7760.
