FERPA Tutorial

Welcome to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
online tutorial for CCC Faculty & Staff!

This tutorial is intended to provide information about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (hereafter referred to as FERPA), how FERPA laws govern the protection of our students’ privacy, and how complying with FERPA laws and guidelines affects your job responsibilities at Coahoma Community College.

An educational institution that receives funds under any program administered by the U.S. Secretary of Education must comply with FERPA. Coahoma Community College is thereby legally responsible for protecting the confidentiality of CCC students’ education records. In response to our role as “custodian” of students’ records, all CCC employees must review this tutorial, answer the quiz questions, and submit the confidentiality agreement as a condition of their employment.  For new employees whose job duties require access to students' records, this tutorial must be completed before they are granted electronic access to student records via MyCCC student and faculty portal.
