FERPA

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended, it is necessary for Spring Arbor University officials to have written consent from a student prior to releasing information from the student’s educational record to most sources outside the university. The exception to this situation is directory information.

Use this form ONLY if you want the named individual(s) to be able to inquire about your financial aid, student account or student records on your behalf. You, the student, must make requests for changes to your financial aid eligibility and awards in writing. Completion of this form is NOT required to be eligible for financial aid.  Each person to whom you give access will be assigned a password by you that will be used to verify their identity when they call.  Please make sure to provide the password to each individual.

The form is located on the SAU Portal on the Student tab under Change FERPA Release Status.  You may access the form directly by clicking here.
