Accessing Your Student’s Data

Understanding the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is crucial for navigating your student’s academic journey. FERPA ensures the privacy of your student’s educational records, granting them control over who can access this information.

FERPA limits our office’s ability to share specific details about your student’s academic progress without their explicit consent. This protection is designed to empower students in their educational decisions and privacy.

Encourage open communication with your student about their academic experiences. If you have questions or concerns, engaging in a dialogue with your student allows you both to navigate FERPA guidelines effectively.

If you need to speak with an academic advisor about your student’s academic information, you will need to provide a FERPA PIN.

Thank you for your understanding and collaboration in respecting your student’s privacy rights.
