Privacy of Student Records

The Chair is responsible for ensuring that all members of the Department comply with all laws and University Policies which govern the privacy of student education records, including but not limited to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).  These regulations require, among other things, that faculty members keep thorough academic records and forbid the posting of grades by name, social security number or any other system which might identify a student with her/his education record.  For further information, contact the University’s Office of Legal Affairs.
