Accessibility of Student Records
The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law to protect student privacy. FERPA outlines what type of information contained as part of a student education record can be released to third parties. Under FERPA, a university may not generally disclose personally identifiable information from a student record to a third party—which includes parents—without the written consent of the student. Learn more about FERPA guidelines on the U.S. Department of Education website. Any student who wishes to authorize a third party (e.g., a parent) to speak with the University regarding their student record should complete an Authorization for the Release of Student Information. This form is accessible on the Registrar's Office intranet site.
