Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) gives parents certain rights with respect to their child's education records. These rights transfer to the student when they reach the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Parents cannot access even a minor student’s college grades without documentation on file.

Further information on FERPA can be found at Blinn’s Admissions page at www.blinn.edu/admissions/privacy-statement.html.

The form required for parents to have access to their student’s information is available in the Admissions Office or at www.blinn.edu/admissions/ferpa-release.pdf.

FERPA general information can be found at www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/parents.html.
