Student Records Policy (FERPA)

Bryan College maintains appropriate educational records for each student and assures the confidentiality of such records in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974. The complete policy is available in our Academic Catalog. Student records are confidential and will be released to persons outside the college only upon the written request of the student.

Students may elect to allow a parent or guardian access to educational records by filing the following document: Student Waiver to Release Education Records (non-financial) to Parents.
