Sakai and FERPA: Information for Students

Students and other course participants are reminded that they are responsible for observing the confidentiality of student records as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and University policies regarding the management of student data.

Students showing no email address on class rosters have requested that release of their University-registered email address be restricted (this is the email address normally listed in the online campus directory). In this case, in most places Sakai will hide the student’s email address while still allowing messages to be sent to the student through the Messages tool in Sakai. Instructors will still be able to see the email addresses for all students (even those who have requested that this information be restricted).

For assistance on technical matters, please contact the ITS Service Desk at 962-HELP or with an Online Help Request. For assistance with questions about student records or FERPA, please contact ferpa@unc.edu.
