FERPA refers to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. In a nutshell, it means that a university official (advisor, instructor, residence life staff member or student services provider) can only discuss your student’s academic record if your student has authorized us to do so. You can find the FERPA release form here.
In the absence of a waiver, we are free to discuss policies and procedures, but we cannot share any information specific to your student. Your student will be the best provider of information about his or her academic performance. Students can access their grades electronically unless there is a hold on their records. Encourage your student to give you regular updates on how classes are going.
