Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law which protects the privacy of students. In accordance with the law, the College of Science’s Office of Undergraduate Student Affairs can only speak directly to a student regarding his or her request or record. The student may waive their privacy rights to allow the office to speak with another party by completing a FERPA waiver form (linked below) for either a one-time instance or during one semester.
This form does not give complete access to a student’s record, but allows our office to speak with a particular person regarding that particular request.
Complete information about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is available on the Department of Education website.
