found it odd that the quesion posed on the 1990 law on safety and security , was on Release of grad date data.

Understand FERPA

As a former dean at a national university it was my responsibility to understand and communicate with my program directors and faculty FERPA regulations. At the campus we held regular meetings, and the topic of student privacy was always at the forefront of the meetings.

Important Information!

Training was very informative, and provided the material we all need to remain compliant

Do the right thing

always make sure to do the right thing when it come to representing school 


Training was very informative, and provided the material we all need to remain compliant


I've learned that it's easy to misrepresent the school unintentionally by stating something that can't be support by documentation. Also, that students trust can easily be broken by not practing the code of conduct set in place. Going forward, I will be mindful of what is discussed and said. 


FERPA guideline are design to keep the educational records of student private. Request can be made by the student but it must be his/her educational material and the institution has up to 45 days to comply.


Our safety and providing information is very important to our school. Keeping information private is essential.

Great course

I found this course to be helpful starting out as an instructor.


I have learned that an admissions representative requires on-going training. Whether it is to renew certifications to stay ahead of updates or notifications or being aware of important changes that can affect our daily work routine, it is imperative to consistently increase our knowledge. Additionally, having a notebook to record training materials, in order to reference at a later date will help to train other staff members as well.

FERPA for Faculty

I found this YouTube video useful in learning more about FERPA


What I learned in this training module, is the importance of frequent and on going training with your admissions staff. Not just mandatory training needed for certification, but continuing training with your staff as often as possible. Create the necessary time through the work week to accomplish this, and do not cut corners when it comes to time. Make this the standard and culture of your department. 


I plan to implement all that I learned today. I truly pride myself on being integral and honest at all times in life in general. I will make sure that I am making sure I serve the students genuinely and appropriately, as well as the institution. 

Dental Assistant

When I first became a DA I lived in Illinois. and some years ago I decided to relocate to Florida I had to retake my test to receive my certification from Florida. So as my own personal experiences I know for a fact a lot of times credits or certifications are not accepted from one state to another. I also know some things that are require from one state from another may differ for example. Cord packing was not allowed for assistants to do in Illinois as it is in Florida. Every state required something different.

Distance Education

One of our biggest success is had a great as team work to keep attached to their  process. We validate that every case discussed had been resolve with the integration of our policies and regulations to keep in compliance.

In our case as one of our campus has the online modality, we must ensure to keep the documents secure in digital copy. and implement Ferpa Law to every single process.  We do plan keep improving  our reports to maintain our internal audits more simple structured and accurate as we do grow. .


Treat others how you want to be treated! Lead by example and be transparent in all that you do and say...

Education equals compliance

Education others will improve compliance

Culture of Compliance

Every course, is full of wonderful information, but I feel that I learned alot after taking " A Culture of Compliance".  A bottom line is, that all school personel needs " to do the right thing" when it comes to responding to the students needs. Going above and beyond, needs to be a consistent action, as staff become a united front.  

applying what ive learned form this training

Training is ineffective unless the desired behavior, knowledge and skills are transferred to the workplace. Applying what you've learned from your training will help you maximize your performance results. Please take a moment to reflect on what you've learned and how you intend to apply what you've learned in your workplace environment.
