The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records, including the right to inspect their education records, request an amendment of the records that the student believes are inaccurate, and the right to control disclosures of their records except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
In most instances, student educational record information may not be released without prior written consent of the student.
If your student would like the CGE to be able to speak to you about their participation in study abroad, the financial obligations, and FERPA protected details, we encourage students to complete the FERPA Release Form in the Center for Global Education application and authorize this communication. This form can be amended at any time.
Please note: Signing a FERPA release form in the Registrar’s Office or with the Business Office does NOT cover the release of information for the Center for Global Education. Students can request the form from our staff or complete online.
