Release Form

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) provides students and parents with certain rights regarding their data. You can see the full York University FERPA policy in the Student Handbook

In many cases, York University will not be able to discuss your student with you without a FERPA release, even if the student is a dependent. The release form can only be completed by the student. Federal Law prohibits you from completing this form on behalf of your student.
