Use of Student Information (FERPA)

Faculty and Staff Guide to the Student Information Policy

MIT’s student information policy describes when, and to whom, faculty and staff may disclose personally identifiable information about current and former students. It also gives students the right to see and to challenge the accuracy of the records that MIT keeps about them. The policy incorporates the privacy rights and protections provided by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (often referred to as FERPA or the Buckley Amendment).

This website was prepared by the Committee on Student Information Policy (CSIP) as a guide for faculty and staff. The full text of the policy is available on the MIT Policies and Procedures Website.
