All Student records are handled within federal privacy guidelines referred to as FERPA guidelines. Only the student is authorized to receive information related to his or her student records via phone, email or in person by presenting an official ID. All non-directory information is strictly protected and will not be shared with anyone besides the student.
Students can authorize all or limited information to be shared with a parent, a spouse/partner, or an outside agency. Students must make this request by completing a Confidential Release Form and submitting it to the PSU Office of Student Financial Aid prior to any information being released.
This authorization can be an ongoing or a one time release of information and may be revoked at any time by the student in writing.
