Frequently Asked FERPA Questions

 

 

Where can I get a copy of the law?


Information about FERPA is available at: http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html

Why can't I get my child's grades/class schedule? I'm paying tuition.


FERPA does not permit Clark College to release non-directory information without the student's signed consent on file in the Enrollment Services Office.

Can you tell me how much my child owes in tuition so I can pay?


No. Your child must either tell you how much he or she owes, or your child must submit to the Enrollment Services Office a signed autorization to release information specifically to you.

Can I have my directory information released to just my parents?


No, a student does not have the right to request non-disclosure to a particular person or group of persons.
