FERPA

We know what an important partner parents can be in their student's success at UVU. We look forward to working with you to help your student have a good experience in college. Parents need to be aware that because of FERPA privacy laws, we cannot give information about their student's account to anyone except the student. Even if your student is under the age of 18 and/or you're paying the bill, we will provide account information only to the student. Students who wish to allow their parents access to their student records, including payments, registration, grades, and/or financial aid information, can submit a hard copy of the Student Information Release Authorization form to the registration office, or file one electronically through myUVU.

 

Student Information Release Authorization

 

To find the form in myUVU, students should:

  • Log in with their UV ID and password
  • Click on the Students menu
  • Click on My Academics
  • Under Academic Information, click on Student Release of Information.

Tuition Payment Plus Access for Parents

Students can give others (parents, employers, etc.) the ability to access their account information and make payments on their behalf. In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), student financial records may not be shared with a third party without the student's written consent. Adding an authorized user is the student's written consent that the authorized individual may view his/her account information and make payments on his/her behalf. Please note that adding someone as an Authorized User does not take the place of the Student Release Authorization form. Authorized users DO NOT have access to the student's stored payment methods, academic records, or other personal information. 

Authorized users can log into tuition payment plus using their email and the password they were sent when initially added as a user.
