8. Student Provided 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. Student Provided Access Authorization allows students to give a third
party, such as a parent or guardian, access to their academic and or financial
records. This permission is effective during the dates listed online and access
will be given as long as the third party can provide the access word assigned.
Academic records may include academic performance, class schedules, grades, and
grade point averages. Having access to financial records allows authorized
users to access billing, financial aid, and payment options all online. There
are varying levels of access which a student can pick and choose from, such as
verbal or electronic consent. Students may give access via SUOnline in the “Students” menu under “User Account” options. For
