Section 4: Program Overview & Course Certification
This scenario refers to the posting of grades on class websites. Your husband is currently taking several courses at the university. He tells you that he is able to check his grade on the class website. You watch as he logs in using his ID and password. To your amazement, you can see his grade as well as the grades of the other students in his class. You realize this is a violation of FERPA laws. What should you do?
In this situation, whom should you notify about this FERPA violation?
Notify Records and Advisement about the situation.
Confront the instructor directly and inform him or her about FERPA.
Do nothing since it is not your responsibility to report FERPA violations and it does not affect you.
