A Note Regarding Privacy, Grade Reports and Billing
Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, U.S. universities are not allowed to disclose certain information about students to the public, including family.
In the U.S., the ownership of information is transferred to the student once the student is 18 years of age or attending a university. Student ownership of information includes:
- Billing information
- Academic standing
- Course schedules
- Financial aid
Although this might seem strange and/or counterintuitive, the University of Wisconsin-Superior, including the Office of Intercultural Student Success (ISS), cannot give billing information, academic standing, course schedules, or financial aid information to your parents, relatives, guardian or friends.
ISS realizes that in some circumstances this can be frustrating for students and/or their families. Most students follow our suggestion to simply take it upon themselves to keep their parents or other key people informed. A second option is to sign a release of information waiver that is available through the ISS. Completing and submitting this form will allow UW-Superior staff to share your information with anyone indicated on the form.
The U.S. government provides information about FERPA (The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act) if you would like to learn more.
