Confidentiality of Student Records
The University regards the student’s personal information and academic record as a matter of confidence between the student and the University. The contents of either may be revealed only in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 (Public Law 93-380, Section 438, as amended).
In order that parents of students may receive from University officials information concerning the academic record of their child, it is required that either the parents must prove the financial dependence of their child upon them according to the dependency test as defined in section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, or the student must grant a waiver of rights.
Students wishing to waive their FERPA rights relating to the release of academic information or to request nondisclosure of directory information must do so through DORI and Self-Service Banner>Personal Information>Answer a Survey>FERPA Waivers and Nondisclosure. Information provided by the student will remain in effect until such time that it is changed by the student. Once a student separates from the University, only requests for nondisclosure of Directory Information remain in effect. For details, go to www.duq.edu/ferpa.
