FERPA for Parents
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA is a federal law that ensures the privacy of students’ educational records and gives students the right to inspect and request amendments to those records.
Grades, course schedules and transcripts are among the data considered to be educational records and not directory information. In accordance with FERPA, the university can neither discuss nor share non-directory educational records with anyone other than the student, including parents, without the student’s written permission. Waivers may be obtained at the request of the student. This request by the student can now be made online.
