Take a Moment to Refresh FERPA Familiarity

Primary tabs

If a parent contacted you about his student’s grades, would you know how to handle the situation?

“Student education records are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act — known to most as FERPA,” said Georgia Tech Registrar Reta Pikowsky. “Taking a moment to familiarize yourself with this legislation can go a long way in helping you, and the Institute, avoid problems down the road.”

FERPA is a federal law that applies to all institutions that receive federal funding.

To schedule FERPA training for your office, department, school or college, contact Pikowsky.
