Release of Information (FERPA)


Have an online or phone appointment?

You must setup a FERPA pin in order to discuss your specific academic record.  

Student records at The University of Utah are governed by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and its implementing regulations.

A student must authorize the University of Utah to release information to any 3rd party, such as a spouse or parent, whether over the phone, in person, or electronically. 

These records include, but are not limited to, Financial Aid, Scholarships, Tuition, Registrar Records, Housing Residential Education, and Academic Advising records.

Note: If you request information to be released to your email account, the information will be sent to your UMail account.
