Access to Resources
Many parents want to find out their student’s grades, ask about their student’s academic performance or check on their student’s finances.
Access to all of these falls under the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which places limits on the right to review educational records. Once your student is enrolled, regardless of age, you will not have access to his or her educational information unless your student specifically grants it to you.
It’s worth reading the FERPA information and then discussing with your student the types of protected information and how he or she will share that information with you. Your student can also add you as an Authorized User to view and pay their student account.
