Accessing Student Records
Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)
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. At any time, the student can complete a FERPA waiver so that parents, guardians, or other appropriate third parties are able to discuss the student's records with Drexel.
