Public Access to Your Course

Student data (such as name, address, major, etc.) is protected by The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). This Act indicates that information from records, files, and data directly related to a student shall not be disclosed by any means (including telephone) to individuals or agencies outside the University without the signed, dated consent of the student in writing, except pursuant to a lawful subpoena or court order. By sharing course postings, e-mails, assignment submissions, etc., you would be in danger of violating a student’s rights.

Check with your Dutton Institute Learning Designer for alternative options for granting public access to or sharing student content in your course.
