The US Department of Education recently published new regulations effective as of January 8, 2009 to clarify FERPA regulations and grant additional judgment to administrators on a case-by-case basis. The regulations changes were prompted after the tragedy at Virginia Tech left university administrators unclear about their duty to the student when there was a dangerous campus situation.

This seminar will focus on reviewing an institution's responsibilities under FERPA by examining how the new regulations have changed an institution's previous procedures. The seminar will also review the updated regulations using a "used to be" and "now is" format and clarify the obligations of campus administrators under the new regulations.
