The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is the federal law that restricts disclosure of student education records, including class work, grades, student conduct, financial records, and all other records maintained by the University regarding a student. Other legal and University requirements also restrict how we handle student records. This session will highlight the legal requirements under FERPA and other laws regarding disclosure of student records, including when and how disclosure is permissible. The session will include a discussion of student records issues that staff and faculty may encounter, including, responding to requests for information from third parties and parents; handling class assignments; addressing student conduct issues; and providing references for students. There will be an opportunity for discussion of these issues and to address questions on these topics.
