FERPA is a Federal law that is administered by the Family Policy Compliance Office (Office) in the U.S. Department of Education. 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 their financial status they can stop in at the Bursar’s Office and sign the waiver in person.

For more information you can go to the FERPA General Guidance for Students.

NOTE: You must complete a FERPA form at the Bursar's Office for parents/guardians any third party if you would like them to access your account information.

A paper copy will be mailed to your address on file on January 31st. You may consent to receive an electronic copy by signing into My.Sussex Portal and accessing the “Student” page/ “My Account – Bursar – Business Office”. The method of reporting for your 1098T that Sussex County Community College chooses to report to the IRS is the amount billed for qualified tuition & related expenses.
