Does FERPA Privacy Apply to Records of Your Graduates?

Does FERPA Privacy Apply to Records of Your Graduates?

In some cases, yes.  According to Academic Impressions:

FERPA does apply to records that relate to the alum's life while he/she was a student, even if the record is being accessed after the alum is no longer a student:

  • Name, social security number, date of birth
  • Address at enrollment at your institution
  • Degree, academic awards, and honors received during attendance at your university
  • Participation in student activities
  • Parent name, address, employment during student’s enrollment
  • Information about the student prior to attending the university (such as high school attended)

To what does FERPA not apply? You can read more here.
