The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), formerly knows as the Buckley Amendment, is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under certain applicable programs of the U.S. Department of Education. LSB participates in some of these programs.


FERPA gives parents of dependent students (dependent under the IRS code which is different from a dependent for financial aid purposes) certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students".


  • Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by LSB. We are not required to provide copies of records unless, for reasons such as great distance, it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records.
  • Parents or eligible students have the right to request that LSB correct records which they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing with the Executive Director. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information.


Generally, LSB must have a written request or written permission from the parent of a dependent student or the eligible student in order to release any information from a student’s record. FERPA rules apply to admissions, academic and financial aid records alike.  However, FERPA allows us to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions:


School officials with legitimate educational interest
Other schools to which a student is transferring
Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes
Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student
Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school
Accrediting organizations
To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena
Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergenciesState and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.


Lansdale School of Business may disclose, without consent, "directory information “. The following information has been designated as public or “directory information”, and may be disclosed by the school for any purpose:

Student's Name and Address
Telephone Listings (house and/or mobile) and e-mail address
Major Field of Study
Dates of Attendance
Degrees and Awards Received


Any student who objects to the release of any of the above listed "directory information" by LSB should contact our executive director in writing stating the request to change or update the release information and status on the FERPA waiver.

Students have the right to file a complaint with the U. S. Department of Education concerning any alleged failures by the School to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The Office that administers FERPA is:


Family Policy Compliance Office
U. U. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, D C 20202-8520


Students who prefer not to be photographed or have their photographic image used in any LSB literature press release, brochures or relate materials must notify the executive director in writing. This notification can be included on the LSB FERPA Waiver From. Your preference is maintained in your academic file.


Lansdale School of Business provides this information in the school catalog to keep our students aware of their rights. We also post this information on our intranet.

Once a year reminders are distributed to all enrolled students requesting updates to any previously provided waiver information.

[LSB testimonials]

I was interested in LSB because it was a small school with flexible schedules so I could tend to my family's needs. I am soon to graduate and just completed my externship at a Dermatologist's office where I have accepted a position as a Medical Assistant. I am so happy with what I learned at LSB, and though it was challenging, it was well worth it.

LSB provides a well-rounded program with diversity in the courses offered. I've been introduced to many areas within the Legal field that I'll encounter when job searching. The Instructors offer excellent expertise and use their own personal industry examples to help students learn. A mock trial in Criminal Law class allowed students to participate in a trial officiated by a Professional Judge. It's been a life changing experience and has opened my eyes to a different world of learning and an understanding of the need for Community legal aid.
