This training can have a delay of up to 2 business days after your start date.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Northern Arizona University is a community unto itself. As such, the university is the repository for various types of information about the members of the community. The sharing of that information is governed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA became law in 1974 and provides requirements for the proper release of information pertaining to students’ educational records.
The law stipulates the conditions for the release of information to others, both within and outside the university. FERPA training for staff and faculty is available in an online session at FERPA Online Training.
