Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA): During an advising appointment, advisors may only discuss educational records with the student. Students may authorize third parties, such as parents or guardians, access to review their academic records. To grant such access, a student can complete and sign the TWU Authorization to Release Educational Records form and submit it to the Registrar's Office with a copy of their photo ID.
