Notification of Rights under FERPA

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

  1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records (including recordings of communications and interactions with students) within 45 days after the day that the Registrar’s Office of the Universidad del Sagrado Corazon (“Sagrado” or “University”) receives a request for access. A student should submit to the Registrar’s Office a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The Registrar’s Office will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.
  2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.A student who wishes to ask to amend a record should write to the Registrar’s Office, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants to be changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the Registrar’s Office decides not to amend the record as requested, it will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing re­garding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  3. The student has a right to provide written consent before the Registrar’s Office discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.The Registrar’s Office may disclose education records without a student’s prior written consent to university personnel with a legitimate educational interest. The university personnel typically includes a person employed by Sagrado in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position (including security personnel and health staff); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance com­mittee. It may include a volunteer or contractor outside of Sagrado who performs an institutional service for which the university would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the university with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, a collection agent or a student volunteering to assist another university personnel. Typically, the university personnel has a legitimate educational interest if the employee needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for Sagrado.
  4. Sagrado may also disclose education records without the student’s consent to offi­cials of another institution in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. Sagrado will make a reasonable attempt to notify the student of these disclosures, except when the request or the disclosure is initiated by the student.
  5. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Sagrado to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202

Directory Information

Sagrado, at its discretion, may provide the following directory information: student’s name, address, telephone number, electronic mail address, photograph, date and place of birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, degrees, honors and awards received, and the most recent educational agency or institution attended, and other such similar information.

A student who wishes that Sagrado withhold directory information from disclosure must notify the Registrar’s Office in writing within ten (10) days after the first day of class each semester. If this form is not received in the Registrar’s Office by the end of the third week of classes, it will be assumed that the above information may be disclosed.

If at any time the student requests to block a directory information, it will remain in effect until the student notifies the Registrar's Office in writing that he or she does not wish to have a directory information block on your record. In order to permanently have the block removed, the student must send a written request to registro@sagrado.edu.
