FERPA - Privacy Act


The University of Georgia is legally and ethically obligated to protect the confidentiality of student records. The Office of the Registrar provides several resources to help students, parents, faculty, and staff learn about student privacy rights and responsibilities.


Each new employee who will have access to any Student Information System is required to complete a FERPA quiz and certification.  Current employees will be asked to complete a recertification on an annual basis.


Whether you are in the process of certifying your access or just seeking information about FERPA, please see all of the following components for complete information:
