Student Name University Identification Number (UIN)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 1974 (FERPA), requires FGCU to treat non-directory information (i.e. Date of
Birth, Religion, Citizenship, Disciplinary Status, Ethnicity, Gender, GPA (Grade Point Average), Marital Status, UIN, and SS#) as
confidential information. Such information cannot be released to anyone other than the student. By FERPA definition, under
most conditions, parents, legal guardians and/or spouses are considered as third party individuals and are not allowed access
to education records without written consent of the student. Parents may also receive access to the student’s education
record through compliance with a subpoena, in connection with a health or safety issue, or by providing a copy of recent
federal income tax form noting the student as a dependent of the parent (Internal Revenue Code of 1986, Section 152).
I, the student, understand that by signing this form, I grant FGCU permission to discuss and/or release information
pertaining to my education record to the person(s) listed below. This information may be related to directory or non-
directory information. Directory Information includes name, university email address, mailing address, major field of study,
dates of attendance, enrollment status, class status, degrees and awards received, participation in officially registered
activities and sports and athletes’ height and weight). I also understand that Behavioral/Conduct Records and
Medical/Health information are not encompassed in this release.
NOTE: Until you decide to rescind your request, the University will continue to release such information, even after your
enrollment has terminated.
Unless specified below, this permission includes all areas deemed necessary by the University during my enrollment (i.e.
Registration Records, Financial Aid Records, and Business Office Records).
I understand this consent form will be in effect for the entire FGCU educational career, unless I notify the Office of Records
& Registration in writing.
