Student Privacy and FERPA: Virtual FSDP Workshop

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is the law that the University and its employees must follow with regard to student records. This workshop will give participants an overview of student privacy laws, regulations, and University policies pertaining to the confidentiality of student records. Because failure to follow FERPA can result in federal censure, loss of federal funding from the U.S. Department of Education, and adverse reflection on one’s employment at the University, it is important information for all faculty and staff who handle student records. This session will help participants avoid the pitfalls of noncompliance and become the student records “go-to person” in their department. Upon completion of this session, attendees will know how and when FERPA applies at Pitt, what exceptions to disclosure of records exist, where to go for further information, and how University policy is applied to student records.

Presenters: Jennifer Seng, Assistant Vice Chancellor and Deputy Chief Legal Officer
   Office of UniversityCounsel
Patricia Mathay, University Registrar
