Access to Student Records

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student records. For more detailed information, visit the SJSU Catalog's FERPA webpage and information on FERPA and Parents from College Parents of America.

Access to Student Financial Information

Please see the Bursar's Office FERPA webpage about obtaining access to your student's campus financial information. Make sure he/she knows that you will not have access to his/her records (grades, etc.) by giving you access to view/pay their student fees and balance.
