The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), also known as the Buckley
Amendment, is the federal statute that governs
student educational records. Everyone who works with student records should be
familiar with the law's provisions governing students' rights to access their
students' rights to amend their records, and students' rights to limit disclosure
of personally identifiable information. The Office of the Registrar offers a workshop
that covers these aspects of the federal
law, as well as our responsibilities to protect the confidentiality of student
regarding the application of the law in your particular area are encouraged.
As the University of New Mexico implements the Banner Student Information System all university employees requiring access to student records must complete the "Securing Private Data" module and pass the "Securing Private Data- EXAM" module through the Human Resources Learning Central website. There is a computer-based training module, Instructor-Led training and a proficiency exam. We highly recommend that you take training before taking the proficiency exam. Please be aware that you will be required to pass the on-line proficiency exam before gaining access.
