FERPA training is hosted on Workday.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), also known as the Buckley Amendment, is a federal law that protects the privacy of student “educational records.”

“Educational records” are defined, with a few exceptions, as records containing information directly related to a student that are maintained by a school or its agent (including electronic records). In higher education, FERPA prohibits schools from disclosing educational records, or personally identifiable information in those records, other than certain basic directory information, without the student’s prior written consent. The student may even request that directory information be withheld. Some exceptions allowing disclosure of educational records do apply. For further information contact the Office of the University Registrar at registrar@willamette.edu.
