FERPA Faculty Letter - Instructions

Instructions for Faculty and Adjunct Faculty

Faculty and adjunct faculty have access to web-based services, via Self Service in the mySVSU portal, for secure access to such information as class rosters, faculty schedules and grading.  Faculty members serving as department chairpersons will also receive direct access to information in Colleague, the University’s ERP system.

Before we provide direct access to Collegue or access to the Class Roster Selection and Grading/Attendance options in mySVSU Self Service, we require that all faculty and adjunct faculty members review the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as Amended, otherwise known as FERPA, and to acknowledge their understanding of FERPA and acceptance of their responsibilities as school officials.

Please review the FERPA Faculty Form (58kB) and return a printed, signed acceptance form as soon as possible to the Office of Human Resources. Should you have any questions about FERPA or guidelines for compliance, feel free to contact the Registrar’s Office for clarification or consultation.

We appreciate your cooperation.
