Student Privacy Rights

Records of Clover University students are confidential and may not be released without prior written consent by the student. Only authorized university personnel have access to student records. The university will not release student records, including financial records, unless the student has given prior written consent to do so. Clover University strives to comply fully with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, Public Law 93-380, Section 438 of the General Education Provision Act (the “Buckley Amendment”) that affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. Specifically, it affords students the right to:
Inspect and review their education record.
Request the amendment of inaccurate or misleading records.
Consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in their education record to a third party.
File a complaint with the Family Policy Compliance Office of the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures of the university to comply with the act.

Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Policy Compliance Office (U.S. Department of Education) concerning alleged failures by the university to comply with the act. Clover University intends to fully comply with FERPA. FERPA authorizes the release of "directory information" without the student’s prior consent in accordance with what is allowable under law.

FERPA Compliance defines directory information at Clover University: Student Name, Email, Address, Phone Number, Student ID Number*, Date of Birth*, Major Field of Study, Dates of Attendance, Enrollment Status, Previous Institutions, Class Level, Degrees and Awards Received, Photographs. *Limited Directory Information:  Student ID number and Date of Birth are considered to be limited directory information, which may be used for verification purposes only, and not released as directory information. This information will be accessible to school officials, consistent with FERPA, who have a legitimate educational interest. If students wish that their directory information not be released without their consent, they should explicitly notify the university in writing.
