Consider FERPA (Release of Information)
What is it? Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of aspects of a student’s educational record that are not considered "directory" information.
Why should I fill out a release form? This gives permission for the Financial Aid and Student Accounts offices to communicate via email/phone, etc. to those you specify on the form to release financial aid and account balance information.
Who should I include? Anyone you would like for us to communicate with that have not already been included on your Payment Selection Form as a Guarantor.
