Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), there are certain parts of a student’s academic record that cannot be released to others. There are instances when students may choose to allow individuals (parents, guardians, relatives, etc.) access to those records. In order for any college faculty member or administrator to share information with specific individuals, a “FERPA Disclosure Form” must be on file. The form is located here.
FERPA release forms from students may only be accepted at the Registrar's Office Window with a Valid Picture Drivers License or Buffalo State Student ID. We can also take these forms if they are emailed from your secure Buffalo State Email to email@example.com.
FERPA forms are only valid for one academic year, then the student must fill out and submit a new one.
Once the form is accepted, a note pertaining to this FERPA release will be available to all advisors when they review your Degree Works Audit Sheet (it appears in the NOTES section).
