FERPA training is mandatory for all employees whose job duties require that they regularly handle or review education records. Education records are defined as any student record that is maintained by the university.
FERPA training should be completed within the first 30 days of employment or before an employee can be given access to any student record systems including Banner and Cognos. This training should be successfully completed every 24 months after the initial FERPA training.
When it's time for you to take this training, you will receive an email from OnPoint Learning Management System which includes instructions and a link to this 30-minute online training. No action is required until you receive the email from OnPoint.
The From address on the email will be "Learning System Administrator" [noreply@sumtotalsystems]. You may also log in directly to the OnPoint LMS and click on "Take Required Training."
