This tutorial is designed to give you a better understanding of FERPA and how it relates to Goucher College.

All faculty and staff, as well as any other agents of the College who request access to student education records must complete the FERPA tutorial and quiz and submit an electronic certification form. The tutorial is designed to give a base level knowledge of the rules governing the release of student information and is intended to ensure that everyone who accesses student records understands the obligations under FERPA for proper use and protection of student records.

WHY?

Because it is the right thing to do so; because the federal government requires us to do so; and because students have the right to confidential treatment of their education records.
