The University of New Haven encourages the growth and success of its students, and provides support systems when students are having any difficulty in achieving their goals. Parents are often inclined to assist students in navigating university support systems. While the university works to partner with parents on a student's experience, student educational records are protected by the Family Education Right to Privacy Act (FERPA) and cannot be released to parents or other designees without the signed release of your student. In addition for those students who are not a dependent of their parent of guardian (as defined by the IRS Code of 1954), but wish to allow educational records to be disclosed and/or discussed with their parent or guardian (or any third party), a Release of Education Records Form must be completed and submitted to the Registrar or the Dean of Students Office.
The form to release information to specified others is available here: Release of Education Records Form
