A FERPA tutorial is now online that allows staff to review the fundamentals of student privacy rights.
Under the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), students may limit disclosures, except in situations where release is required under the law. NMSU considers the security and privacy of student records an important priority. The FERPA tutorial is designed to give you basic knowledge of the rules governing release of student information and to ensure that you understand your obligation for proper use and protection of student records. The completion of this tutorial is an important step in safeguarding student data and strengthening the trust of our students.
The tutorial will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
