The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records created or maintained by a school that receives Federal funds. Students who attend Carleton College retain the right of privacy in their education records.

Carleton may provide access to a student’s education records to a third party if the student provides written consent using this form or as provided in FERPA and Carleton’s policy available in the Student Handbook. A “qualified parent” may receive access upon student written consent or with a copy of the parent’s most recent IRS 1040 in which the student is claimed as a dependent.

Please complete the form below and submit it to the Dean of Students Office.
