Notification of Rights Under FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records.

These rights include:

  • The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the academy receives a request for access.A student should submit to the Registrar’s Office or other appropriate official, a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. An L3 Airline Academy Official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by an Academy Official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
  • The rights to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.A student who wishes to ask the Academy to amend a record should write the Academy official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed.If the Academy decides not to amend the record as requested, the Academy will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to an appeal regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the appeal procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to an appeal.
  • The right to provide written consent before the Academy discloses personal identifiable information from the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.


L3 Airline Academy discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.

A school official is a person employed by the Academy in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personal and health staff); a person or company with whom the academy has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using academy employees or officials (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.

A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the Academy.

  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the academy to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
