Review FERPA Information
Posted on August 18, 2017
As the start of the 2017–2018 academic year is fast approaching, now is a good time to review Drexel's privacy policies regarding student information.
A student's education record is protected by rights provided under a federal law called the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA protects the privacy of student education records for students who are at least 18 years old or who attend or have attended a postsecondary institution, even if they have not reached the age of 18. This means that once the student has started attending Drexel, access to his or her information including grades, enrollment, and certain financial matters will only be available to your student. You can view more information about the policy on the About FERPA and Granting Access page.
Drexel will work with family members as much as possible within the guidelines of FERPA; the University's goal is to ensure that the student receives all the assistance they need, and we recognize that having family actively involved in their progress at Drexel is important. That said, students remain ultimately responsible for all aspects of their Drexel education, such as completing coursework, paying their bill, and earning their diploma; therefore, they are the primary decision makers when it comes to their education records. You can view more information about how FERPA impacts family members on the Information for Family Members page.
