This tutorial is a learning tool designed to equip faculty, staff and students with a better understanding of the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

The tutorial is not an exhaustive study of the topic of FERPA, but it does address the essential elements of the law.  It is not intended to be a substitute for legal advice.  Specific questions regarding FERPA should be answered by the Registrar's Office.

Once you have finished the tutorial,  you will be prompted to complete a quiz over the tutorial material.  Completion of this quiz with a score of 100% will create a record that you have successfully completed FERPA training.

Questions regarding the interpretation and implementation of FERPA may be directed to:
