The Catholic University of America

The Catholic University of America is legally and ethically obligated to protect the confidentiality of students' records. The material that follows is designed to make those members of the campus community who do not work directly with confidential student information aware of the basics of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Almost all employees will come into contact with student education information at one time or another. For this reason, online training has been created to build an awareness of FERPA. You are required to complete this training once every two (2) years.

This training takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please read each slide carefully and click “Next” to move on to the next slide. To return to the previous slide, choose the “Previous” button. Once you have read through the slides, you will be asked to test your knowledge by completing a short quiz.

For your participation to be recorded, you must complete all sections. When all the required sections have been completed, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. We recommend you keep a copy of this e-mail for your records. If you experience technical difficulties, please contact us at (202) 319-4177.
