Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)


A student’s right to privacy is protected under FERPA – The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. What this means is that we will not discuss your financial aid with anyone unless you have given us written authorization to do so. The Information Release within your Contact and Privacy App must be updated before any UWF staff member will discuss your student record with someone other than you.
