The U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, is a federal law giving certain rights to parents or students regarding education records at schools of every level receiving funding from the U.S. Department of Education.

At the postsecondary-school level, the rights afforded by FERPA pertain, in general, to the student rather than the parent.

The form below allows students to give consent for SLU to release their information to parents or others.
