FERPA Restrictions - View
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy rights of a student's education record. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under any program administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
Under FERPA, schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" or "public" information about a student, such as name, address or dates of attendance, provided the student has a reasonable opportunity to restrict the disclosure of such information.
How to Identify FERPA Restrictions
In UAConnect, the privacy shade icon indicates that all or part of a student's directory public information is restricted
from release to other parties. The shade icon only displays for students that have
restricted any or part of the directory information.
- Click the shade icon to open the Non-Releasable FERPA Directory Information page and view the restrictions.
- Click Return to continue.
You can also view the student's entire FERPA Directory Information Hold page by opening
the Navigator and going to Campus Community, then Personal Information, Biographical,
Person FERPA and then FERPA Dir Restriction - Inq.
