What is FERPA?

  • The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, both financial and academic. For the student’s protection, FERPA limits release of student record information without the student’s explicit written consent; however, it also gives the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) the right to review those records if the parent(s)/guardian(s) claim the student as a dependent on their Federal Income Tax Return. Students must log into their MyHusky account to complete. Detailed info about FERPA.

Can I get a copy of my class schedule?

  • Class schedules can be found on the Student Center on MyHusky.
