FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law designed to protect you. It outlines who Doane can share your information with, and what rights you have as a student to your academic records. Upon admission to Doane all students should sign a FERPA release form that explains your rights and allows you to give other people (mom, dad, husband, employer, grandma, etc.) access if you so wish. To view this form, visit the Forms for Student page and select the FERPA form. More details can be found in theCrete Student Handbook as well as the Lincoln Student Handbook or view Doane's FERPA policy.
