FERPA Privacy Waiver Provisions

Information for Designees under UConn’s Online FERPA Privacy Waiver

The Online FERPA Privacy Waiver includes six categories of information: Financial Aid, Residential Life, Husky One-Card, Academic Information (Office of the Registrar), Community Standards (The Student Code), and Student Services and Advocacy. This page explains exactly what information the University may discuss with you if your student has named you as a designee under the Online FERPA Privacy Waiver.

Even if your student has designated you under the Online FERPA Privacy Waiver, University faculty cannot discuss academic information (e.g., student grades) with you. You will need to have your student sign a separate, specific waiver in order for this to occur. If you need more information, please contact Rachel Krinsky Rudnick, the Assistant Director of Compliance/Privacy at (860) 486-5256 or rachel.krinsky@uconn.edu.

In addition, please be aware that Student Health Services waivers are not included in this Online FERPA Privacy Waiver process. However, their waiver form is available online. If your student wishes to delegate you as a designee who can discuss their information and records with Student Health Services, please ask your student to complete and forward the form to their office for processing.

Should you lose or forget your pass code, please contact your student to remind you of the number, or set a new pass code. The administrative offices listed below will not be able to assist with lost or forgotten pass codes.
