The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect student educational records from being made public. Soka University of America (SUA), in compliance with FERPA, requires student consent before disclosing any non-directory student information. Only the released capstones and theses are made available by Ikeda Library. SUA students are given the option to release their work for viewing at the time of submission.
SUA acknowledges that students, as the authors of their capstones or theses, retain all intellectual property rights, including copyright ownership. Except for what is permitted under fair use (Title 17 Section 107 United States Code), readers of the released capstones and theses may not reproduce, post, or distribute them in any physical or electronic form without the permission of the students, the copyright owners.
The authors of the released capstones or theses may request that the library remove their work from the collection by emailing email@example.com.
