FERPA


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a U.S. federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records. FERPA limits the amount of information we are able to share with you about your student's academic and financial records. In order for you to have access to this information your student will need to go to id.usu.edu, create a security phrase, and assign delegate(s), such as a parent or spouse. To find out more about FERPA visit http://www.usu.edu/registrar/htm/ferpa

If your student is unable to assign delegates because they are on a Leave of Absence, and you claim your son or daughter as a dependent on your federal income taxes, you can complete the Parent Declaration of Student Dependency form to gain access to their records.
