FERPA + Student’s Rights

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Casa Loma College complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The following is a reproduced fact sheet available from the U.S. Department of Education Family Policy Compliance Office.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are “eligible students.”

  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school. Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records. Schools may charge a fee for copies.
  • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that a school correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.
  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student’s education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):
    1. School officials with legitimate educational interest;
    2. Other schools to which a student is transferring;
    3. Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
    4. Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
    5. Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
    6. Accrediting organizations;
    7. To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena;
    8. Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
    9. State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.
  • Schools may disclose, without consent, “directory” information such as a student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification is left to the discretion of each school.

Unless the student has officially filed a written request with the Registrar’s Office that disclosure not be made without their written permission, directory information may be included in appropriate College directories, publications and news releases and may be disclosed by staff members in response to inquiries concerning individual students whether such inquiries are made in person, in writing, over the telephone, or by electronic means.

To withhold directory information please complete the Student Information Release Authorization form. This form is available through the Registrar’s Office and must be on file with the Registrar’s Office.

What People are Saying

I am currently an active student in the DMS evening program. The instructors, Mr. Dhillon and Dr. Arthur, are fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, and always willing to help their students improve and succeed whether in lab or lecture class. You do learn a lot within the 2 year program and are expected to know all the information in order to pass the exams so expect to make time to study your books and especially (most importantly) learning how to scan! Practice is key!

Aside from the program, the school staff are all very friendly and willing to help out with anything you need! All in all, it's really up to the student to make use of their time here and take advantage of the resources offered at CLC. My youngest brother graduated from Casa Loma College and currently has a great job so I know it's within my reach to succeed in my future career.

I am a recent graduate of Casa Loma's Physical Therapist Assistant Program. The PTA program here is top notch. The faculty and staff really care about you and want you to succeed. I got accepted into 2 PTA programs and I chose this one after having my interview and seeing how passionate they were about Physical Therapy and teaching. I am so glad that I chose this program over the other. You get personalized teaching throughout the program because of the low student to teacher ratio. I felt that this helped me refine my skills to succeed.

The faculty also gets you prepared for your clinical rotations. My Clinical Instructors said that our school did a really good job preparing me for my rotation and that Casa Loma has a good reputation for PTA's. I was able to perform at a high level as a PTA during my rotation thanks to the faculty.

I feel more than ready to succeed as a PTA after my schooling here. I was able to pass my boards on my first try and I was able to get a job immediately after I graduated. I have nothing but great things to say about this program! I absolutely loved it here!!!

I started to inquire from this institution doing my best to get into the PTA program, staff members were very friendly and accomodating. I did my requirements with very little hope because of my financial situation, but the administration knew I really wanted to do this and I got accepted as a student after going through all the tests, procedures, and interviews. Financial department did what they can to pull out all the necessary resources for me to approved for student loans, professors are very adept and knowledgeable in their field of expertise as well. After graduating, they worked with the students nonstop through grueling long review classes before taking the boards to ensure students will do exceptionally well.

Long story short, I started with nothing... I graduated, passed my boards, became a licensed profession. I am currently doing Home Health and I couldn't be any happier. I owe my success to each and everyone from this prestigious institution.
