Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Web Degree Audit for Advisors users are required to comply with FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended (FERPA), the federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.  For more information, see the FERPA Reference Sheet for Faculty, available from the UC Registrar's Office Web Site.

Appropriate use of the Web Degree Audit for Advisors by those with a "legitimate educational interest."
Student education records accessible through the Web Degree Audit for Advisors are protected by FERPA from both inappropriate access and release.  Under FERPA, a university official (including faculty) may gain access to student education records only if that individual has a "legitimate educational interest" in that information; that is to say, the individual needs the education record(s) to discharge his or her official UC responsibilities.  Web Degree Audit for Advisors, therefore should be used by UC personnel only when performing individual advising work for a student.  For example, accessing the education record of a student who is enrolled in the advisor's class, but who is not also the instructor's advisee, would not fall under "legitimate educational interest" and so would not be FERPA compliant.  An advising relationship that meets the requirements of legitimate education interest can be defined formally, when a student is assigned to an advisor by the department or dean's office or informally, when a student outside a department or college needs advising that requires access to the student's education record.
