How does FERPA affect me?

ASU's FERPA policy is in place to protect your records and to prevent inappropriate disclosure. This means that you must provide picture identification for in-person access to services and your records.

You must select your private password when activating your ASURITE UserID, which you will use to access web-based records and services. Don't share your password with anyone.

For your protection, services over the telephone and email may be limited if the university representative you are calling or emailing does not know you or is not confident of your identity.

Your directory information (see list in Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) may be released to anyone who asks, unless you take specific steps to prevent the release of your information (see Question #2).

Also, you can grant permission for ASU to share information from your educational records with specific people you identify (see Question #4).
