  • Register for a CA4 Account Enter High School Information Add at least one College After step 3, the CA Waiver and FERPA info will be available Sign FERPA (you need to do all the above to be able to even see the FERPA) Go to Naviance & Match!
  • Second paragraph contains a very thorough explanation of what FERPA is and why/how it matters to colleges in the recommendation review process. Third paragraph informs student that they should consult with a counselor or other school official if they are not sure what to choose.
  • Remember the phrase “Invite a recommender” – it will be important later on when we talk about matching
  • Last year, fewer than 50 students requested that their FERPA choice be changed. The thoroughness of the language and the explanation of what FERPA is and what it means in the recommendation process will probably help reduce confusion on this topic.
  • This form replaces the form that was previously accessible only by clicking on a link within the NACAC SR form. This will be much easier to see, and counselors will easily know if it has been completed or not.
  • “ Passing mark” requires a numerical answer. Note that you can see who last updated the form and when.
  • Can see that the form has been updated. Use the “x” to make this message go away.
  • Can we get a screenshot of the actual permissions?
