Student records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal regulation which assigns rights to students and responsibilities to educational institutions regarding students’ education records. The Act governs the maintenance and release of information from those records.

  • All students have the right to review their educational records, to request amendment of records, to consent to disclosures or personally identifiable information, and to file complaints with the U.S. Department of Education
  • Students should contact the Oregon Tech Registrar’s Office for reviewing educational records and requesting amendment of records

Access to Canvas (or other Learning Management System)

Student access to Canvas course sites for individuals not enrolled in the class is not allowed, as that access would expose non-directory information to non-enrolled individuals.
