I don’t deal with student records, why should I care about FERPA?

  • As an employee of the university, you are legally and morally responsible for protecting student privacy.
  • Even if you do not work directly with student record information, there may be times when you come across such information. For example, finding a student’s ID card, or seeing protected student education information displayed on a bulletin board.
  • Knowing what to do or at least being aware of FERPA can make a difference.
