FERPA: Penalties for Violations

Institutions which violate the FERPA can be faced with a withdrawal of Federal funding. This, however, has not occurred since the inception of the Act. Typically, complaints are fielded then corrections are made. Practically speaking, an institution is unlikely to lose funding unless multiple violations occur without any corrective action taken.3
