FERPA (Family Education Rights and Privacy Act)
Now that your student is enrolled in a University, ownership and control of their educational records are now only accessible by the student. According to FERPA, college students, regardless of their age, are considered responsible adults that are allowed to determine who will receive personal information about them. While parents understandably have an interest in a student's academic progress, they are not automatically granted access to a student's records without written consent of that student. Parents are encouraged to consult with their student if academic information is needed.
FERPA and Student Employment
Below are some examples that Student Employment cannot release any information to you regarding:
- Jobs your student has applied to
- Disciplinary actions from a student employment job
- Wage information from a student employment job
