Each year, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico informs the students about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act enacted in 1974 (FERPA). This Law, with which the University will totally comply, was designed to protect the privacy of students’ academic records, to establish the students’ rights to inspect and review their educational records, and to provide guides in cases where incorrect or misleading information must be corrected through formal or informal hearings. Students will also have the right to file complaints concerning alleged failure by the University in complying with the Law.
Our institutional policy explains in detail the procedure which Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico will follow to comply with the provisions of the Law. This policy can be found in the Library, in the Reference section. There the Institutional Regulations to Protect the Students’ Right to Privacy may be found.
Questions related to this Law will be referred to the Vice Presidency of Enrollment Management and Student Services. The student who files a complaint and who considerers that the decision granted has been unfair, or does not conform with the dispositions within the Law, may request in writing the mediation of the Vice Presidency of Enrollment Management and Student Services. As an additional recourse, the student who considers that his/her rights have been violated can file a complaint with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office, Department of Education, Office 4074, Switzer Building, Washington, D.C. 20201. This complaint must be related to alleged deficiencies incurred by Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico in complying with FERPA.
