It should be noted that any parent/guardian who proves that he/she claims a student as a dependent for income tax purposes has the same rights to access. Each time a specific record is requested by a parent, the request must be in writing. All other requests for student educational records must have the written consent of the individual with the exceptions recognized by FERPA or a completed FERPA Waiver must be on file in the Student Records and Financial Services Office.
If you desire further details, a copy of the law is on file in the Student Records and Financial Services Office, Agriculture Science Building.
Alfred State's policy is that student directories will be available for internal use only. These directories will be issued by the Student Records and Financial Services Office to offices upon request. Distribution of student directories (labels) to third parties is prohibited. This is in compliance with provisions of FERPA. Further, the Student Records and Financial Services Office will provide directory information to the military upon written request as mandated by the Solomon Amendment.
