The Account Administration has the ability to enable one or both of these features. To enable, navigate to your name | School Account & Settings | FERPA Release & Waiver Forms.
Once enabled there will be other selections the Account Administrator will need to make. NOTE: If selections are not made, the default selections will prevail.
The Account Administrator may want to configure the waiver. Some areas of the waiver allow for text changes as needed to conform to school regulation and policies.
