FERPA Tutorial Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Some University records are subject to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.

This law gives citizens the right to information about the affairs of government.

Do not confuse this with a right to access student educational records. Student records are protected by FERPA, and their privacy is not impacted by FOIA. FOIA does not grant anyone the right to view a student’s private educational record.
