The Office of the University Registrar complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Emory University’s Data Management Policy. Under this Act, individuals with an educational need to know may access student data for the purpose of fulfilling required job responsibilities. FERPA requires that you maintain the confidentiality of all students’ records, and that no information from the records be released to a third party without the written permission of the student.
Much of Emory’s institutional data reporting is done using enrollment data verified as of the University’s official fall Date of Record. The enrollment summary captures enrolled headcount by academic career, for the period fall 2011 through fall 2016. Likewise, the summary of degree and certificate completions is based on verified completion outcomes, for academic years 2011-12 through 2015-16.
