FERPA training is an important step in ensuring that colleges and universities understand their obligations to protect the privacy of student education records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This federal law applies to educational institutions or agencies that receive funds from the US Department of Education.
Among its provisions, FERPA prohibits schools from disclosing personally identifiable information from students’ education records without the written consent of a parent or eligible student, with some exceptions. Student names, social security numbers and student IDs are examples of information protected under FERPA.
Providing FERPA training to school administrators, faculty, staff, employees, and third-party contractors and vendors can help schools avoid FERPA violations and meet their responsibility to protect the privacy of student records.
