Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) governs students' right to inspect, review, and control access to their educational records.
Student rights under FERPA (Annual Notification)
Use the forms below to authorize release of your records to a third party.
- To authorize a parent, spouse, or other person to communicate with OHSU on your behalf: Consent to Release Education Records - Ongoing

FERPA allows educational institutions to designates certain information as “directory information” and to release that information without students' written permission. Directory information is information contained in the education records that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed, such as name and degree earned. A complete list of directory information at OHSU can be found in the Education Records Policy. Students may request in writing that their directory information not be released without their written consent by completing the Request to Restrict Directory Information. Please read the form carefully before signing it to understand the impacts of restricting your directory information.
