Policy 2213 – Policy Concerning Student Social Security Numbers

WWW Posting Date: 1/15/2002

Responsible Office: Provost/Registrar’s Office

Reference: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

All faculty and staff of the University are to refrain from the use of social security
numbers and student names in any public use, e.g., posting grades, room seating charts,
validation of class rolls, and selected lists. Grades should never be posted using
names or social security numbers. Other numbers or means of identification (determined
by the student and/or instructor) can be used in posting grades. If posted, grades
should be listed in random order (not alphabetical) so that students can in no way
be identified with their grades.
