Are there any Yale records about a student that are not covered by FERPA?

In certain circumstances, some information in the following categories may not be considered “education records” covered by FERPA:

  • medical records;
  • law enforcement records;
  • employment records;
  • records about post-graduation alumni achievements; and
  • a faculty or staff member’s personal notes about a student that are not shared with others.

In addition, your personal observations of a student’s behavior are not education records covered by FERPA.

Please consult the registrar of the student’s school before concluding that the types of information discussed above are not protected by FERPA.
