Student Rights and Responsibilities


Course qualifications

Before registering for a course, please make sure that you fulfill all the prerequisites listed on the Course Information page. Note: Only high school students are required to supply proof of prerequisite completion by submitting the required AP score and/or high school transcript at the time of registration.


Personal qualifications

NetMath is best suited for students who are organized, like to work independently, and devote time to learning the course concepts. During the term of the course, it is very important to set aside time each day to work on your course material.


FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, commonly known as FERPA, is a federal law that governs educational records. It grants specific rights to students and regulates how institutions must handle educational record, including grades. The main focus of FERPA is to give students rights to see their records and to protect against disclosures of certain information without the student’s consent or specific legal authorization. Further information is available at https://registrar.illinois.edu/ferpa-fs.

For High School students and their parents: This law transfers all the rights of the Act to the student as soon as he/she enters the higher education setting, even if they are still in high school. Article 99.5 (a) states, “When a student becomes an eligible student, the rights accorded to, and consent required of, parents under this part transfer from the parents to the student.” At UIUC, this applies on the first day of instruction, even if the student is under 18 years of age—and is indefinite. The full text of the Act and some FAQ’s for parents can be found at the Department of Education website.

This message serves as your annual FERPA notification as required by law.


Academic Integrity

All NetMath students are officially University of Illinois students and are subject to student code article 1, part 401. Any NetMath student found to be in violation of Academic Integrity will receive an official notice and consequences will be determined on a case-by-case basis in accordance with University policy.
