Fall 2012 Grading Closed
Grading for Fall 2012 I has been closed. Students who were not issued a grade by the instructor have been given an incomplete. Instructors can remove the "I" grade using the link on the Faculty menu in GoWMU.

FERPA and the Health and Safety Exception
The health or safety emergency exception of FERPA permits school officials to share relevant information with those parties whose knowledge of the information is necessary to provide immediate protection of the health or safety of the student or other individuals.

Typically, law enforcement officials, public health officials, and medical personnel are the types of parties to whom information may be disclosed to under this FERPA exception.  This exception does not allow for a blanket release of protected information; rather the release must be limited to the period of the emergency and to those individuals who have a need to know.
