FERPA Tutorial for Faculty & Staff

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

Welcome to the Online Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Training. Before FERPA was enacted in 1974, students did not have a right to access their records but just about everyone else did. There are serious obligations under FERPA. This tutorial will help you understand the responsibilities of handling student record information under FERPA and the college’s privacy policy.
