FERPA – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Avoid Mistakes & Costly Violations Across Campus

Everyone on campus who deals with any kind of student records — whether academic or not, formal or informal, permanent or temporary, paper or electronic, centrally or locally stored and even including email — MUST have a grounding in FERPA. There is nothing as fundamental to higher education practice and compliance as FERPA and there is perhaps nothing as misunderstood. Making assumptions about its scope and provisions can lead to mistakes, non-compliance and legal complaints.

Join FERPA expert, Steve McDonald, as he shares insight into FERPA and its complexities. You’ll find practical steps and solutions and ensure you understand the rules and how to implement them correctly at your institution.

Topics Covered

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize what is and what isn’t subject to FERPA — train everyone on campus who deals with any kind of student records properly and alleviate a FERPA violation.
  • Apply key disclosure exceptions — know when and how to disclose to avoid compliance problems.
  • Identify and understand FERPA’s “forgotten” parts — students’ rights to “inspect and review” and “seek amendment of” the records that pertain to them.
  • Incorporate new ideas and practical steps to adapt and enhance your campus FERPA compliance.
  • Comprehend current FERPA compliance standards and learn about impending developments to adapt on your campus.
  • Learn how to apply FERPA in the unique current circumstances of the pandemic — know when and how much you can disclose about the COVID status of specific students to faculty, classmates, local health authorities, or other parties so you can avoid a compliance issue.


Steven J. McDonald is General Counsel at Rhode Island School of Design and previously served as Associate Legal Counsel at The Ohio State University.
