Policy Overview
Quick Reference: University Policies

As at other American colleges and universities, Berkeley considers its students to be adults, with all the responsibilities and rights to privacy that adult status entails. Students are expected to behave in accordance with the Code of Student Conduct and are held accountable for their actions. Berkeley complies with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, also called the Buckley Amendment, that promotes student privacy by limiting the information that schools are allowed to give out about individual students. Thus, although you may be paying your students' fees, you aren't entitled to see their grades without their written permission.

Summaries of FERPA, as well as other University policies that may affect your students, appear below.
