FERPA awards to students certain rights of access to educational records and imposes upon the university obligations concerning the release and disclosure of those records to third parties.
Therefore, each Belmont student will need to provide written consent on this form to release any informational, educational, or financial records to any party outside of his or herself. This form will need to be completed by the student.
The individuals specifically listed on this form will be granted access to share or discuss matters related to a student's account. If an individual is not listed on this form, (i.e. a parent), then the university cannot release any student information to that individual. However, this FERPA form also serves to notify the university of a student's dependent or independent familial status. The Buckley Amendment regulations allow the university to disclose information from an educational record to parent(s) or guardian(s) if a student is considered a dependent for federal income tax purposes.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this submission. Students can re-submit this information at any time and the information on the most recent submission will be honored.
