FERPA for Faculty

To avoid violations of FERPA rules, DO NOT:

  • at any time use any part of the Student ID Number, or Social Security Number, of a student in a public posting of grades;
  • ever link the name of a student with that student's Social Security Number or Student ID Number in any public manner;
  • leave graded tests in a stack for students to pick up by sorting through the papers of all students;
  • circulate a printed class list with student name and Social Security Number/ID Number or grades as an attendance roster;
  • discuss the progress of any student with anyone other than the student (including parents) without the consent of the student;
  • provide anyone with lists of students enrolled in your classes for any commercial purpose;
  • provide anyone with student schedules or assist anyone other than college employees in finding a student on campus;
  • if any non-directory information is included in a letter of recommendation, the student's written permission is required.
