Parent Rights

You and your student will encounter many differences between K-12 and post-secondary educational settings. For instance, when your student was in elementary and high school you were provided with information on their performance and behavior. Once your student reaches college, regardless of their age, you will no longer be provided with this type of information unless your student shares it with you. The law that we are required to follow in these situations is called the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Please visit the The U.S. Department of Education FAQ page for help understanding this law.

If your student wishes for you to speak with their DAS advisor about their accommodations they may complete a form in the DAS office to make this designation. Once in place, their DAS advisor may speak with you specifically about your student. If your student has not provided you with access, you may still contact DAS for assistance. A DAS advisor is available to speak with you about situations your student may be experiencing in general terms, but will not be able to share any information they may have about your student.
