Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C.§ 1232g; 34 CFR
Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.
The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of
the U.S. Department of Education. In accordance with FERPA, researchers need to
be extremely cautious about releasing data that could lead to the identification
of individual students, particularly when related to financial or performance data.
Per OIRA guidelines, tables produced from TIPS intended for presentations or any
other public release should have small cell sizes (N < 5) suppressed.
By using the
Austin Community College Information Portal (TIPS), you are agreeing to the FERPA statement
