Family Education Right and Privacy (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) protects the privacy of individual students by placing certain restrictions on the disclosure of information contained in University records.

In order for the Student Account Services and University Billing Office to release information to any third party (including parents), a student must first grant permission.  The student can set up an Authorized Payer in the QuikPAY billing and payment system, allowing the authorized individual the ability to view online statements, make payments, and ask questions about the student account.
