- The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the college receives a request.
- The right to request the amendment of the student’s educational records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading.
- The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s educational record, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosures without consent.
