Madonna University respects the privacy of our students. Student information is shared only in strict compliance with FERPA (see below for Madonna University’s institutional response to FERPA). Students have the right to either restrict the release of Directory Information, or request their information be freely shared with another individual (such as a spouse or parent) by filing a request at the Registrar’s Office.
Madonna University's Response to The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA protects the privacy of student records and student rights pertaining to those records, including the following:
Madonna University continues to enforce FERPA since inception of the act in 1974. According to federal regulations, all universities are required to notify students on an annual basis of their rights under FERPA. Madonna University complies with this regulation by publishing FERPA notifications in the print and Web forms of the Bulletin.
The following items are considered “Directory Information” according to our interpretation of FERPA.
Only these items may be released without student's consent:
All other items are considered restricted information and will not be released or discussed without student's written consent.
If a student exercises the right to restrict the release, no Directory Information pertaining to the student will be published or otherwise released to third parties without consent, court order, or subpoena. Once a request is filed, it is in effect until one year after the student’s last attendance or until the request is revoked in writing.
Students can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education if they believe their rights under FERPA have been violated. Complaints should be addressed to:
