The financial aid office houses a vast amount of student data that could be helpful to many offices across campus and to outside entities. In this session, we will discuss the two important federal laws that govern the release of various types of student data commonly held by financial aid offices, along with real-world examples and best practices for developing effective institutional protocols to ensure consistent and compliant data release processes. We will also share tips on how to work with data requesters to be responsive to requests and compliant with the rules.
