FERPA

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal law (sometimes referred to as the Buckley Amendment) that mandates that college academic records are the “property” of the students and a few select institution personnel.

Only students can share or give permission to share their grades and enrollment status with parents. Academic advisors, instructors, counselors, and registration staff members are legally bound not to disclose this informationwithout student permission.

It is a good idea to discuss and review this law with your student.
