How will I know if a student has blocked his or her record?
FERPA blocks are collected in each institution’s Enrollment Reporting file and applied only to that institution. It’s possible for a student to block some records at one institution while not blocking any records at a different institution.
Your Control Report shows the number of students in your StudentTracker Submission File whose records were blocked, identifying them “No Records Found.” If your submission file has only one student whose records are blocked with all other student records found and returned, we will suppress your Aggregate Report to honor the student’s request.
Single student search adheres to the same FERPA blocking rules, unless the search is for financial aid purposes or is a consent-based search (meaning you obtained the student’s permission to perform the search).
