The 2013 AACRAO FERPA Guide and its portable companion, the 2013 AACRAO FERPA Quick Guide, are must-own books for every office that handles student records. The books have the legislation itself, with highlighted changes from both 2009 and 2012, and each has multiple compliant sample forms to use as a basis for forming your own institution’s policies and procedures. The books also highlight related legislation, like HIPAA, and offers explanations of how they interact with FERPA. There is even a section that details common issues, and suggested actions to address them.
College & University, an AACRAO journal contains regular updates from Mr. Rooker and other experienced practitioners, and our bi-monthly online newsletter for members, AACRAO Connect, features the popular “Ask Professor FERPA” column, where specific questions are answered by Mr. Rooker.
