Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information relating to students must be handled in a secure manner under FERPA.

This includes all records containing the student's social security or student ID number, such as add/drop forms, transcripts, student information displayed on a computer screen, grades, class assignments, class rosters, student schedules, and reports.

Again, any printed or displayed document that contains the student's social security or student ID number is considered to be personally identifiable information and thus protected under FERPA.

Key Points:

Records that typically contain personally identifiable information:

  • Add/Drop forms
  • Transcripts
  • Student information displayed on a computer screen
  • Grades
  • Student schedules
  • Class rosters
  • Any paper with the student's SSN or Student ID
