Does SCOIR’s electronic signature on the FERPA Release and FERPA Waiver constitute a valid signature?

Yes, FERPA §99.30(d) states that written consent “may include a record and signature in electronic form that (1) identifies and authenticates a particular person as the source of the electronic consent; and (2) indicates such person's approval of the information contained in the electronic consent.” Usernames and passwords satisfy the identification and authentication element in part (1) of this provision.

How did we do?
