The Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act protects the privacy of student records and gives students access to their records to assure the accuracy of their contents. If you are a faculty or staff member or a student that works with student educational records, you should go through the Registrar’s FERPA on-line tutorial and take the FERPA quiz.

If someone within or outside the Goucher community asks you to disclose information from a student record, you should check the FERPA on-line guide and the College’s FERPA Policy before agreeing to provide this information. If you have any questions about responding to a request for information about a student, contact the Registrar or the Office of General Counsel.
