Parents' Rights

Now that we have discussed some of the exceptions under FERPA, let’s talk about parents’ rights and some additional ways to avoid violations under FERPA. Parents must have a signed consent form from their child in order to obtain non-directory information, but they may obtain directory information.

Parents who claim a student as a dependent under the Internal Revenue Code may have access to non-directory information.

Key Points:

  • Parents may obtain non-directory information only if they have a signed consent from their child.
  • Parents who claim a student as a dependent under the Internal Revenue Code may access non-directory information by providing evidence of such dependencies to the Director of Records.
