Privacy of Student Records (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of students’ educational records. Eligible students have certain rights regarding their educational record. You can read more about these rights in the FERPA Annual Notification and Rights.

By completing a FERPA consent form, students may authorize Grace officials to release information about their academics, student account, financial aid, student affairs, student conduct, or other information from their educational record. Students are not required to complete this consent form, but one is necessary for Grace to have on file if a parent or other individual wishes to discuss with someone at Grace a student’s account or other educational information. To request a consent form, please contact the Registrar’s Office.

If you would like to inspect or amend your educational record or restrict the release of your Directory Information, please see Grace College’s FERPA policy or contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance.
