3 Types of Access

At UConn, students may provide direct access to certain portions of their education records. Students also have the ability to provide permission for certain offices at UConn to discuss records held or managed by that office and/or services provided to the student through that office. Different processes are required for each of these options.

This page provides you with information on the various ways students can provide the University with the documentation it needs to share certain records or discuss their contents where prior written consent is required.

FERPA stands for the Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act which protects your students information and educational records. Under FERPA, your student has certain rights regarding their educational records, including the right to have access to their own educational records, and the right to have control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from their records (except in certain circumstances specified by FERPA regulations). FERPA requires University faculty, staff, vendors and affiliates (known as school officials) to protect their educational records and the information contained in those records. School officials can only share the contents of those records in accordance with FERPA’s requirements including only sharing or discussing the contents of the records with the students prior written consent.

For more information please visit UConn’s FERPA page.
