FERPA applies to all educational agencies and institutions that receive funding under any program administered by the Department. Once a student reaches 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, he or she becomes an “eligible student,” and all rights formerly given to parents under FERPA transfer to the student.  If a student wishes to have someone have access to thier financial status they can stop in at the Bursar’s Office and sign the waiver in person.   For more information you can go to this link:
