The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. These are:

The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the School receives the request for access. Students should submit to the Director or other appropriate official written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The School official will make arrangements for access and will notify the student of the time and place where records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the School Official for whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the appropriate official to whom the request should be addressed.

The right to request an amendment of the student’s educational record that the student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the School to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. In such cases, the student should write the School Official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they are requesting be changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the School decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the School will notify the student of the decision and will advise the student of his/her right to a hearing regarding the request for an amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.

The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to School officials with legitimate educational interests. A School official is a person employed by the School as an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff person (including law enforcement unit, personnel and health staff); a person or company contracted (such as attorney, auditor, funding agency or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, or assisting another School official in performing his/her task.

By filling out this form, you understand that School of Medical Massage will utilize this information to contact you to provide more information about School of Medical Massage by a variety of methods including phone (both mobile or home, dialed manually or automatically), email, mail, and text message. Additionally, calls may be monitored or recorded for quality assurance.

A School official has legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his/her professional responsibility.

Parental access to a student’s record will be allowed without prior consent if the student is a dependent as defined in Section 252 of the Internal Revenue Code.

The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the Dayton School of Medical Massage or its Non‐Main Campuses to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:
