(Online FERPA Release to a Proxy)
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents/guardians do not have access to their student’s collegiate educational record unless the student provides consent. To meet the needs of Friends University students and parents, and to encourage students to safeguard their Friends username and password, the Office of the Registrar is happy to announce that students no longer need to fill out a paper form. This authorization to provide such consent by the student is now available entirely online.
By logging into the link below, students can release non-directory information to parents, employers, or other specified individuals, referred to as proxies.
Upon entering their FalconHUB ID and password, students can choose to authorize different levels of view access to one or multiple third-party individuals (proxies). Options include view access to their unofficial academic transcript (including grades), schedule of classes, financial aid account information, and more. The student can also authorize Friends University to discuss these items with the proxy. The student is in control of who has access, what they can see, what they can discuss with Friends, and for how long they have this access.
Once the setup is complete, the proxy will then receive email instructions on how to access a separate, secure online portal. This portal requires a log-in to view the information pages to which the student has granted them access. Once the setup is complete, the parent or other defined proxy will be able to view, but not change, the information on the authorized pages.
If the student wants to request a complete non-disclosure of all information, please contact the Registrar’s Office in Sumpter Hall 115 or at email@example.com for guidance.
