FERPA RELEASE

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal Law that protects the privacy of student education records, both financial and academic. FERPA also gives the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) the right to review those records if the parent(s)/guardian(s) claim the student as a dependent on their Federal Income Tax Return. Students may also grant authorization by clicking on Grant Online FERPA Authorization through their Student Dashboard > Resources Page > Requests and Authorizations Section in FlashLine.
