Training Overview

Do your student privacy practices meet 2022-23 requirements?

As the 2022-23 academic year begins, you must ensure that your college or university adheres to the current, far-reaching requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). From students’ desires to see admission records to parents’ interests in grades to roommates’ concerns about mental stability, you need to know the legal details and apply practical implementation strategies relevant for this school year.

Your institution must have policies and notices in place. Students have rights to review their personally identifiable information. In specific scenarios, colleges and universities can disclose information without the student’s consent to parents, the media, or members of the public.
