Education Records

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) controls access to student education records. BYU will make a reasonable effort to extend to eligible students and their parents the rights granted by the act. For specific policies and procedures regarding privacy of education records for BYU Independent Study students, please visit the Privacy Policy on BYU Independent Study’s Policies webpage. Additional information regarding FERPA and BYU’s policies and procedures related to education records are set forth in the BYU Registrar's Records Privacy (FERPA) webpage.

Any student with requests or questions regarding their education records may contact the BYU Continuing Education Registrar at 801-422-8925 or by mail at 116 HCEB, PO Box 21533, Provo, UT 84602.
