Identifying FERPA Restrictions in SIS
In SIS, the privacy shade icon is used to indicate that all or part of a student’s directory/public information is restricted.
When you see this icon on any page, it indicates that the student has requested that at least some of his or her directory information be restricted from release to third parties. In order to find out what information is releasable click on the privacy shade icon.
Note: If the student is an employee of the university, the notation ‘Employee’ will appear to the left of the FERPA shade in the top image, like so:
As a good business practice, if a FERPA shade is present on the student’s record, it is always a good idea to refer the person requesting information to the Office of the Registrar: 855-0121 or REGISTRAR@indiana.edu.
