FERPA

Authorization to Release Student Information Form

FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, is a federal law that pertains to the release of and access to student educational records. The law, also known as the Buckley Amendment, applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the US Department of Education.

If a student wishes to sign a waiver allowing a Plan II adviser to discuss the student's academic record with his/her parents, the student must sign a waiver of the education privacy rights.  The form will be kept in the student's file and will be valid for one year. The student must sign a form each year the student wishes to waive the FERPA privacy rights.

The student must come to the Plan II Honors office and see an adviser to sign the waiver.  This form will not be available for download.

Go to FERPA or US Department of Education Policy Guide to learn more.
