School Records

The University is prohibited, based on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), from releasing certain information to parents and/or family members without permission of the student. FERPA, also known as the Buckley Amendment, considers college students as responsible adults who are allowed to determine who will receive information about them. Under this law, parents who want to receive a copy of their student’s academic or financial records can do so only if their student signs a release form. This form is available online. We encourage you to have a conversation with your student regarding how  information regarding academic and financial records will be shared.
