THE FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA)
FERPA (sometimes referred to as the Buckley Amendment) protects the privacy of educational records and establishes the rights of students to inspect and review their educational records.
This means once your student enters college the right of access to his or her educational records goes directly to the student, unless your student has given specific, written permission to release that information to someone else.
To gain access to your student’s educational records, i.e., grades, billing, financial aid and other student record information, your student must fill out a Student Information Release Authorization through his or her MyCSU account. The form is located in the Bookmarks section of the Student tab.
