East-West University complies fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 as amended. Only East-West University faculty and staff, acting in the student’s educational interest or performing University related functions, shall have access to student records.

No one outside the University shall have access to, nor shall the University disclose information from, student records without the written consent of the student except in accordance with the law.

Prior student consent is required to disclose student records to the parent of a dependent student as defined by Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954.

A student may inspect information contained in his or her record with the exception of financial information submitted by parents or confidential recommendations related to admission. A student may challenge the accuracy of the University record with the appropriate University office.

East-West University can release certain information on a discretionary basis without prior student consent. Such information is never knowingly provided to any requester for commercial purposes. Requests to withhold information should be made in writing to the Registrar’s Office.
