Third Party Release
For students who wish to have the information in their conduct file shared with a third party, a release waiver must be signed. According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a student’s educational record becomes their own upon reaching the age of 18, or when a student enters an institute of higher education. In order for conduct information to be shared with any third parties, the student must complete a release waiver and designate the specific parties who the student wishes the information to be shared with. Upon signing a release waiver, the student has the right to rescind the release waiver at any time.
