How CourseMaven ensures FERPA compliance for students and campus personnel

FERPA protects the privacy interests of students in their education records. It generally prohibits the disclosure of a student's personally identifiable information from education records without the consent of the parent/guardian or eligible student. An eligible student is one who reaches the age of 18 years old and/or attends a postsecondary educational institution, in which case the rights of the parent/guardian transfer to the student.

When using CourseMaven solutions, students voluntarilly share academic history and other relevant information with college admissions and registrar personnel to facilitate the college admission/registration process for continuing education and workforce development courses. The CourseMaven solutions capture student authorization to share such data and act as a trusted custodian with full awareness of and adherence to FERPA compliance requirements.
