No. Student information cannot be posted using "personally identifiable information" as defined in FERPA. According to federal regulations and MSC policy, "Personally identifiable information" includes, but is not limited to:
The Board of Regents issued the document "Converting from Use of Social Security Numbers to a Unique Identifier" in December 2003. This document states:
"The University System of Georgia is committed to implementing practices and procedures to ensure the protection of confidential information, including replacing the Social Security number with a alternate student identifier."
"Institutions should have clearly defined policies and procedures on the generation and maintenance of student identification numbers and the collection and use of the Social Security number. These policies should be developed within the governance structure of the institutions and should be included in student, faculty and employee handbooks."
"The federal law prohibits institutions from requiring students to provide their Social Security number; however, the law does not prevent or discourage institutions from requesting and maintaining the Social Security number a part of the student record."
Institutions are encouraged to clearly document why the Social Security number is being requested, how and when the number will be used, and to whom it can be disclosed."
