Because the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of your education records, if you want anyone including parents, partners, outside organizations and others to have access to your files, North Seattle College needs special permission from you. Without this release, staff and faculty will be unable to talk freely to anyone other than you about your education records. For example, some students like having this release on file so their parents can also talk with their advisors about their grades or the financial aid office about their grants and scholarships.
