What Are the Consequences of Violating FERPA?
The consequences for violating FERPA are serious and include: 
  • Temporary suspension of access
  • Inability to perform ones work
  • Possible prosecution under criminal codes
  • Dismissal or Termination
  • Loss of Federal funding to the institution

In light of these consequences, access to student records must be used responsibly.  On-going training and communication are important. 

Should you have questions about what is permitted under the Act, contact the Office of the Registrar or the Office of the General Counsel. 

And, as a rule of thumb, remember... If in doubt, don't give it out!
