Student Records Privacy (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords you certain rights with respect to your education records, including grades. Your consent is needed for others to review your records except in certain cases, including parents who claim you as dependent. You may also allow your parents/guardians to access your grades by signing the Parental Access to Educational Records Form. The form is available in the Office of the Registrar. Barton College does not automatically inform parents/guardians of grades; however, they may request grades from the Office of the Registrar if the signed consent form is on file.
Additional information on FERPA is available in the College Catalog.
