Access to Owl Express
Faculty and administrators who require access to view student information using Owl Express are required to complete FERPA training and have a completed Buckley form on file with the Registrar’s Office. Additionally, administrators and advisors requiring access to Owl Express are required to complete the third page of the Buckley form.
Faculty with a Buckley form on file in the Registrar’s Office will have access to the class roster through the Faculty tab in Owl Express. If the Faculty tab is not available, the faculty member must submit a completed Buckley form to the Office of the Registrar, email@example.com.
FERPA for Faculty and Staff
FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) allows students to place a Restriction on their Directory Information. This Restriction prevents the disclosure of any information on this student including the fact that they are in fact a student at KSU. However, the law has recently been modified to clarify that a student may not choose to be anonymous within the classroom setting, whether in a traditional or distance learning class, by placing a Restriction on their records. Disclosure of personally identifiable information, such as the student’s name and email address, as required by the instructors and classroom setting for purposes of conducting the class and class activities is permissible under FERPA.
Maintaining confidentiality of student records is everyone's responsibility at KSU. Why? It's federal law. University employees who have access or have requested access to systems that contain student record information will be required to review this tutorial before access is permitted. Employees may be asked periodically to review and acknowledge their understanding of this information to remain current with federal regulations.
This online tutorial provides basic information about FERPA regulations that govern the disclosure of student record information at Kennesaw State University (KSU).
New Faculty Access and Buckley Form
