Student information is easily accessible via Self Service Carolina; this is sufficient for most faculty and staff. You automatically have SSC access once USC Columbia HR has input your employee information, but you will need to contact the Registrar's Office to be able to view student information.

For the ability to directly input/update student data, you need Internet Native Banner (INB) access.

All faculty and staff who require access to student records are required annually to complete a tutorial and quiz on FERPA and Student Rights. New faculty and staff who need to submit a request for access to student records will be able to access the request form at the completion of the tutorial and quiz.

FERPA Tutorial and Quiz

Complete the Banner Access Form and Confidentiality Agreement found at the conclusion of the FERPA quiz.

Obtain required signatures for both forms and either drop them off in the Registrar's Office or email scanned copies to the Registrar at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
