The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
The University of Montevallo requires that employees with access to confidential student information have knowledge of FERPA and complete the FERPA online quiz.
The Records Office has created a FERPA link in ForUM where you will find basic FERPA information and a quiz developed from samples in the AACRAO FERPA Guide that will test your FERPA knowledge. All employees who have access to student information must visit the FERPA site and complete the quiz. Everyone will have to be on record as having successfully completed the quiz.
Please follow these instructions to test your knowledge of FERPA.

(The final step of the quiz is to confirm your information. Please note that after entering your name and campus email address you must make a selection in both the faculty member box and the staff member box. Click Submit after you have completed the information.)
