FERPA stands for Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. FERPA is a federal law that prohibits DSU from releasing your students personal information, grades and schedule to anyone. Your student can fill out an information release form to allow you to access this information and act on their behalf. If you want help assisting your student with their finacial aid then your student will need to add their Success Team (Jamie Kearra, Madi Wawrzyniak, and Hailey Nailor) to the FERPA Form
