Student Consent for Release of Information to Parents/Third Parties

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, seeks to guarantee both a student’s right of access to records and the confidentiality of student information. Institutions may not disclose information contained in student records without the student’s written consent except under certain conditions. Under the FERPA, a parent may access his/her child’s grades and other education record information in two ways:

1) If the student consents in writing to the release; or
2) If the parent claims the student as a dependent on his/her federal income tax return

If you have any questions, please contact the Dean of Students for the Scooba Campus at 662-476-5000 or the Dean of Students for the Mayhew Campus at 662-243-1979.
