Other Policies


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) sets forth requirements regarding the privacy of student records. FERPA governs both the access to and release of those records, known as education records, and the information they contain. Under FERPA, faculty have a legal responsibility to protect the confidentiality of student records. For additional information about FERPA and SU’s FERPA policy, see supolicies.syr.edu/ethics/ferpa.htm or contact the Office of the Registrar (315.443.3535). http://supolicies.syr.edu/ethics/ferpa.htm
