FERPA for Parents

FERPA is a term you will hear often as a parent transitioning your student to college. FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Please visit FERPA's Parent Guide for important information on your student's privacy rights, and your rights at a parent: FERPA Parent Guide.

Can I talk to Disability Access about my student?

Parents are encouraged to contact the University if they are concerned about their student. Although Disability Access cannot share specific information about students, we can listen to your concerns and provide guidance and resources for parents.

FERPA allows a University to disclose information about a student in the case of a health or safety emergency.
