Protecting Student Privacy

Privacy of Student Information (FERPA) 

The American Fitness and Nutrition Academy (AFNA) annually notifies students of their rights under FERPA by updating the document content and distribution electronically. The policy and/or its updated versions are supplied yearly to students and staff upon request. 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) limits the disclosure of personally identifiable information from school records and defines students’ rights to review their records and request a change to those records. 

FERPA generally gives postsecondary students the right to review their education records, to seek to amend inaccurate information in their records, and to provide consent for the disclosure of their records.
