What is FERPA?
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law which helps protect the privacy of student education records. The Act provides students the right to inspect and review their education records, the right to amend incorrect or inaccurate records, and the right to limit disclosure of student education records. The intent of the legislation is to protect the rights of students and to ensure the privacy and accuracy of education records. FERPA rights begin when a student is enrolled.
A student can add an authorized user to their Ulink account for parents or guardians to have access to view the tuition and fee statement. Adding an authorized user will allow the parents or guardians to be able to make payments on the students account, to speak with someone from the Bursar's office, and to receive emails about statements, payment plans, and tax forms.
