Parent's rights under FERPA

In elementary and secondary schools FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's educational records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level (i.e. a college or university).

However, parents can retain FERPA educational record disclosure rights for "dependent students", as defined by Section 152, IRS Code of 1954, by providing the required documentation.

Since you cannot know what documents are on file, refer ALL requests for information to the Admissions and Records Office.
