Complete the FERPA
FERPA is an acronym for the Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act.
FERPA restricts the ability of WWC from releasing student information (including financial and academic records) to anyone including a parent, guardian, or family member who hasn't been authorized by the student. This means that a student must authorize their parent or family member to view their student account, grade reports, or to speak with college personnel about non-medical issues relating to their attendance at Warren Wilson.
Records for the Counseling Center and Health Center are considered medical records and are not covered under FERPA guidelines. A separate release form must be obtained from these departments.
Once the FERPA is completed online, it can take 2 to 3 business days to process.
