All faculty and staff, as well as any other agents of the university who request access to student academic records, must complete the FERPA tutorial and submit the acknowledgement once all 20 questions have been answered correctly. Access to student records will be denied until the tutorial has been completed and the acknowledgement is submitted.
The tutorial is intended to insure that anyone accessing student records understands the obligations under FERPA for proper use and protection of student records. All questions in the tutorial are supported by information found in this website. Before you begin the tutorial you should review all of the topics found on the FERPA homepage
The tutorial will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. To begin the tutorial, Log in. If you experience any problems logging in, please contact ITS Customer Support Center by phone at (213) 740-5555 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
