"Keeper" of the Record

With the advent of computer technology and the student information system online, every faculty and staff member who is able to access information online is a “record keeper.”  The granting of access will make retrieving student record information much easier for the employees of the University and will, in many ways, facilitate the provision of a quality education to all students.  The granting of access carries with it a bond of trust which will require close attention by all users to the following principles:

  • The faculty or staff member must read and be familiar with FERPA regulations;
  • When accessing the online system, the faculty or staff member must access only that information needed to complete the authorized task; and
  • The information obtained through the online system may only be communicated to other parties authorized to have access under FERPA regulations.
