What about the parents?
Again, student information release rights are held by the student and no one else. Furman can and chooses, but is in no way obligated, to share selected information about a student... beyond what is considered public information... with their parents. In order to comply with FERPA regulations however, one of the following statements must be true:
- we have written permission from the student, or
- the parents can provide proof that the student is financially dependent on them.
