A Student's Right to Privacy


A student’s right to privacy is protected under FERPA – The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. The Office of the Registrar's page explains this regulation.

We are unable to discuss students' accounts with anyone other than the student unless the student submits an authorization. The Authorization for Release of Student Information must be completed in MyUWF in order for any UWF staff member to discuss student records with anyone other than the student. This authorization is found in the Contact and Privacy Info app in the Privacy tab.
