The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, is a federal law that limits the information we can directly provide to the parents of our students. The law provides that Drexel University will maintain the confidentiality of student educational records, unless specifically released by the student.
Under FERPA, Drexel University officials may not disclose information about your child without his or her expressed written consent. Typically, students have the opportunity to request a FERPA waiver via DrexelOne and indicate with whom they wish to share their information. In the event that no waiver is on file, you may request that your child sign a waiver.
