Frequently Asked Questions About Access to Student Records
How can I get a copy of my student’s grades?
The quickest, easiest way for parents to receive information about their child’s grades, financial statement, or other student information is for the student to provide it. Students can look up information online, print it off, and give or e-mail a copy to their parents.
If I’m paying for my child’s education, why can’t I get a copy of his records?
FERPA requires that access to a college student’s records must be granted by approval of the student. Parents can, however, receive information about their student’s records if the student agrees to provide access. Students can complete a release form authorizing specific persons to access their academic records. Parents also can receive information about their student’s record if they submit proof that the student is a dependent. Proof is considered to be a copy of the most recent year’s federal tax form showing that the parent claims the student as a dependent.
My student provided me with access to her records. Can you e-mail a copy of her transcript?
As a matter of policy, the Meredith College does not release private information over the phone or by e-mail.
My student provided me with access to her records during Student Orientation. Why didn’t I receive a copy of his grades after fall semester?
Meredith College doesn’t automatically send information to third parties designated by the student. Parents will need to request a copy of the desired information by sending a letter or fax with their signature. A request must be submitted each time you want to receive protected information.
