All students have the right to protect their information. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, or FERPA, is the United States federal law that protects the privacy of student records. University Policy 402 provides detailed information on how UNC Charlotte protects student records.  Under FERPA, privacy rights transfer from the parents to the student once they turn 18 years old or enter a post secondary institution at any age. Both current and former UNC Charlotte students are covered by these rights.


Please click HERE to access the Guest Access Portal to complete the FERPA form.


Please click FERPA to complete a Student Assistance and Support Services (SASS) FERPA form. This form can be faxed to 704-687-1969 OR emailed to studentsupport@uncc.edu.

Both of these steps must be completed in order for a staff member to be able to speak to a parent and/or family member. If you have any questions, please call 704-687-0289.
