UD and all individuals associated with the university are bound by any applicable local, state and federal laws. The university academic units comply with all of the requirements of the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA). UD makes every reasonable effort to protect the privacy of student sensitive personal information regardless of delivery method. The Registrar, academic unit admissions and records employees are the points of contact for all FERPA related issues. Faculty and Staff are informed and trained of their responsibilities concerning FTC red flag rules and the reasonable steps required to avoid identity theft and release of confidential information.

In addition, all university employees should follow the Acceptable Use Policy outlined by the Information Technology Department to ensure a collective effort for effective information security.
