Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA): According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1976 (FERPA), once a student is enrolled in a postsecondary institution, the student is the sole guardian of her/his records, including grades, transcripts, and records of interactions with Office of Accessibility (OA). If a student would like to share this information with a parent or guardian, she/he can sign a release form. Since students’ contact with OA is completely confidential, their professors will not know the nature of their disabilities. Accommodation letters sent to professors from OA do not include any details of the disability. The student may choose to share that information with her/his professors, but OA will never release any information about a disability without the student's written consent.
