FERPA Information for Parents

FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (updated in 1977), also referred to as the Buckley Amendment. FERPA is the federal law that requires colleges and universities to maintain the privacy of students’ education records. FERPA guarantees students the right to consent prior to the release of a record to a third party, the right to be notified of their privacy rights, as well as some other rights. Students are granted these rights when they matriculate to Augsburg and most other colleges and universities.

**Note: Students who miss two consecutive appointments will have their appointments removed from the Coach’s regular meeting schedule. Future meetings will be rescheduled based on the Coach’s availability. A student’s lack of attendance does not waive the meeting requirement for the GST 001 CAP Seminar or for Probation advising.**
