FERPA & HIPAA: Avoid Confusion, Understand Exceptions & Protect Your Institution

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

"Understanding what exactly FERPA & HIPAA rules are, how they apply to your school, and what happens if a mistake is made, is a difficult task for any higher education entity"

The world of higher education is full of rules, laws, and mandates from both the state and the federal governments. Navigating the waters of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) can be particularly difficult given the often times complex nature of parental relations, health information records, as well as data requests.

This webinar with expert speaker Kent Seaver will allow all higher education professionals an in depth understanding of just what exactly FERPA and HIPAA protect, to whom those protections extend, and what possible exceptions may exist where data normally protected under FERPA and/or HIPAA can be shared. A emphasis will be placed on recognizing the perceived conflict these statutes have with Title IX, and viewers will be able to create and understand BEST Practices that their schools can create to allow for protection of not only student data, but for the students (and institutions) themselves.


Session Highlights:

  • Understand FERPA and HIPAA in the world of higher education

  • Gain an understanding into what rights parents have under FERPA and HIPAA

  • Learn what exceptions exist where information may be shared with other institutions

  • How to properly Apply the role of Title IX in the HIPAA and FERPA dialogue for colleges

  • Discuss how to implement Best Practices for training to avoid litigation over information release


Why You Should Attend:

Access to education is possibly the paramount factor facing today’s higher education community, but access to data is an issue where people in higher education have to know when and where to allow access. Rules have exceptions, and laws are superseded by other laws. When and how to act isn’t always clear, and a mistake may be costly for both the student as well as the institution. Fines and lawsuits can accompany even the smallest breach of confidentiality as it relates to FERPA and HIPAA, so a clear understanding of what these laws entail and how they are used in colleges and universities is of the utmost importance.


Who Should Attend:

  • Administrators and Administrative assistants handling student data

  • Faculty members

  • Student Services Personnel

  • Technology Administrators and Staff

  • Campus Healthcare Providers and Staff members

  • Director of Student Service
