Faculty and staff have access to a great deal of student information that is private and protected by federal laws, specifically the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, known by the acronym FERPA.

This page provides a basic guide to how departments and individuals should handle student information in a manner that will be consistent with FERPA. The full Brandeis University Educational Records Policy may be found in the University Bulletin.
