Release of Information (FERPA)
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 provides privacy protection of a student’s academic record and limits the release of such records without the student’s consent. This law gives students the right to:
- Inspect and review their educational records
- Know what information UT Dallas maintains
- Amend the records if errors are present
The act further provides that the University may disclose such records to parents or legal guardians if the student is a dependent as defined in Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires a child who is a dependent be:
- Under the age of 24
- Claimed on the parent’s most recent federal income tax return
The U.S. Department of Education enforces FERPA laws. Please see their General Guidance for Parents website for more information.
