From the start, we built Handshake to respect school’s FERPA compliance requirements and we’re proud that more than 200 leading institutions have vetted and approved our process. Universities remain in control of educational records we receive when providing career center functionality, such as scheduling appointments or maintaining student records. Students may also form an independent relationship with Handshake, allowing them to continue receiving the benefits of our professional networking and career development services. Additionally, every Handshake employee gets trained on FERPA, data privacy, and system security when they start at the company, and regularly re-trained throughout their tenure with Handshake.
