Parents and family members of SJSU students

We understand that many parents and other family members want to be involved in their student's education (beyond finances). Visit the New Student and Family Programs website for more helpful information.

Information about the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act  is available for Students wishing to give a designated person (usually a parent) access to their  protected academic records.
