The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their educational records. An ‘eligible student’ under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older, who attends a postsecondary institution. It is important to know your rights and it is the College for Technical Education’s sincerest desire to keep all student information private, unless otherwise noted. The enclosed document is the annual notification of the student rights. A paper copy of the FERPA notification may be requested in the Financial Aid Office of the College.
