FERPA Waiver

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the confidentiality of student education records. To implement FERPA, the University has formulated and adopted a written institutional policy governing the handling of these records. Copies of this policy document are available to students in Charger Central, and it should be referred to for a more comprehensive treatment of this subject.

For the purposes of our annual Honors Convocation, students with a FERPA hold on their account must sign a waiver or their name cannot be listed along with the other honorees during the convocation, in the program, or announced aloud.

To waive your FERPA hold for the purpose of Honors Convocation, you can download this FERPA form and either drop it off in Morton Hall 256 or email it to dean-ahs@uah.edu.
