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 heighten awareness of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) in students who are employed by the University. 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.
