Legal Disclaimer for Accessing Student Records and Grades Online

Each User (e.g., Southwest Tech staff member, student or faculty member) is advised that access to student records and grades is governed by federal law. The Family Educational Reporting and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires a student to furnish written consent before his or her records can be released to anyone other than the student to whom the records pertain unless a clear statutory exemption for release of the records exist or the person requesting the records has a legally recognized need to know. Questions regarding the applicability of FERPA should be addressed to the User's supervisor or to Southwest Tech's director of administrative services.
The User shall not read, browse, modify or delete records from another's data or program without proper authority. Public access to computer screens must be avoided.

Access codes, passwords and personal identification numbers must be kept confidential. Users are expected to use appropriate safety measures in regard to records access. Inappropriate conduct includes but is not limited to showing a password to another person, displaying the password in public view and installing a password as a macro function.

Users are subject to disciplinary action and/or civil sanctions for violating records privacy.
