A student's right to privacy is protected under FERPA - The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This regulation is explained in detail on the Registrar's website. What this means is that we will not discuss your personal information with anyone unless you have given us written authorization to do so. The Release of Information Form (FERPA) must be completed and submitted to the Registrar's Office in order for any UWF staff member to discuss your student record with someone other than you.
