Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that aims to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA grants parents the right to their student’s academic records, but only until they turn 18, when the rights are transferred to the student. If your student wants to share their academic information with you, they must fill out and turn in a FERPA Form to the Office of Housing Services. To learn more about FERPA, visit the U.S. Department of Education's website.
