9. Parental Access to Financial & Academic Information (FERPA Waiver)
Once a student arrives at SU and begins classes, the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits SU from sharing financial or academic information with parents unless a FERPA waiver is in place. Students may authorize disclosures to parents via the Records Access Permission and Parent Link Authorization forms, described below.
• Records Access Permission: Allows SU staff to discuss coursework, registration and financial accounts with parents. Grades will never be disclosed.
• Parent Link Authorization: Grants online access to view and pay SU bill. Does NOT allow SU staff to discuss the student’s bill with parents.
Both forms may be accessed and completed via SUOnline in the “Students” menu under “User Account” options.
