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 myid.usu.edu, and assign you as a delegate. To find out more about FERPA visit 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.
*Please note well: As a delegate, you may not do things like inspect your student’s rooms, or answer for your student in processes, or withdraw a student without your student’s consent. Being a delegate does not mean that you have the equivalent rights and responsibilities as your student.
