Sakai and FERPA: Information for Instructors and Administrators

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

To protect student records in the Sakai environment, we ask that any participants that need grading privileges or access to personal information be added to the roster in ConnectCarolina first.  Then, they will automatically be updated in Sakai with the appropriate access to course content.

Please see TA Access and Permissions for information on granting Teaching Assistants grading permissions.

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
