Generally, when a student enters UNC Charlotte, regardless of his or her age, all rights afforded to parents under FERPA transfer to the student, and the student’s written consent is required for disclosure of his or her education records.
However, FERPA also provides ways in which schools may share information with parents without the student's consent. For example:
Parents should ask their students about the NEW Guest Access Portal and whether they can help their student succeed by having online view access to their education records. More information about that service is available at http://registrar.uncc.edu/guest-access.
For further information on disclosure of student education records to parents, please see University Policy 402, Student Records, or you may contact the Office of the Registrar or the Office of Legal Affairs.
