13. Sex Offender Registry
The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed by, institutions of higher education. The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Watterling Crimes against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act. The federal law requires state law enforcement agencies to make this list available. Maryland’s registry can be reviewed at http://www.dpscs.state.md.us/onlineservs/socem/default.shtml The CSCPA further amends the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) to clarify that nothing in the Act can prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders.
