Parents of dependent students are entitled to information on the progress of their sons and daughters. Upon receipt of a request for such information, the registrar will forward the student's grade report to the requesting parent. Dependency is determined by federal Internal Revenue Service criteria.
Filing this affidavit with the Registrar's office gives parents the right to request academic information regarding their daughter or son. Parents must contact the Registrar's Office to request academic information such as a copy of their grade report. Requests for transcripts require the student's signature and parents may not request them.
While respecting the confidentiality of information imparted to advisers and counselors, the colleges assert their right to inform parents of a student's grades or conduct if this seems to be in the best interest of the student and the colleges. Such information will be given in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
