Instructions: This form is to be used by the student to grant access to their education records, academic advising notes, act on their behalf to order transcripts, register and information concerning their classroom performance and grades to other entities besides themselves, such as a parent, spouse, etc.
FERPA also permits a school to disclose personally identifiable information from education records without consent when the disclosure is in connection with financial aid for which the student has applied or which the student has received, if the information is necessary for such purposes as to: determine the eligibility for the aid; determine the amount of the aid; determine the conditions for the aid; and/or enforce the terms and conditions of the aid. With respect to this exception, the term "financial aid" means payment of funds provided to an individual (or payment in kind of tangible or intangible property to the individual) that is conditioned on the individual's attendance at a school.
For additional information regarding access to student records, please consult the most recent student catalogue. Questions about FERPA and its application at St. Francis College should be referred to The Office of the Registrar, email@example.com.
