Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

At Cedar Crest, we believe the success of each student is due to a partnership between the student, College and family. That is why it is important for you to know about FERPA. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal privacy law that gives parents certain protections with regard to their children’s education records, such as report cards, transcripts, disciplinary records, contact and family information, and class schedules. Both students and parents should become familiar with FERPA.

In accordance to the Department of Education's "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act" (FERPA), written permission from the student is required in order for Cedar Crest College to be able to provide information regarding student's financial aid, student accounts and academic information. The following form allows the student to specify those permissions.

You must be logged in to submit this form. Please enter your user name and password above.
