FERPA & College Records


Welcome to the Legal Services Department's
FERPA Online Tutorial

This tutorial is a learning tool designed to provide students, faculty, and staff a better understanding of the confidentiality protections that federal law affords the records that colleges and universities maintain about their students.

The tutorial is not an exhaustive treatise on the topic of FERPA, but it does address the essential elements of the statute. It is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice. Specific questions regarding FERPA should be answered by an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about the law's intricacies.

Once you have finished the tutorial, you may fill out the Online Completion Form. This will create a record that you have indeed completed the tutorial.
