What Is FERPA?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a U.S. federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records. FERPA protects your student’s rights by ensuring we don’t release any information to anyone without their consent; that includes you, as parents. In order for you to have access to this information, your student will need to go to the Office of the Registrar website and fill out the Student Information Release Proxy, which can be filled out electronically or returned in person to the Office of the Registrar. For more information, please visit here.
