Privacy of Student Records

The Director is responsible for ensuring that all members of the School comply with all laws and University Policies that 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 that might identify a student with her/his education record. For further information, contact the University’s Office of Legal Affairs.
