FAMILY EDUCATION RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and provisions of the California Education Code set out requirements designed to govern the access to, and release of, educational records, to estab­ lish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with the FERPA Office (U.S. Dept. of Education) concerning alleged failures by Biola to comply with provisions of FERPA. Biola University has adopted policies and proce­ dures concerning implementation of FERPA on campus. Copies of the policy are available in the Registrar's Office. I
