What is FERPA and how do I complete the form?

The 1974 Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student's education and financial aid records. Student's must authorize PHSC to release and discuss information concerning their financial aid records to third parties, spouses, guardians, family members or employers by completing a FERPA form and returning this form to the Financial Aid Office. Please see your Financial Aid Office for more information regarding the FERPA form and process.
