What FERPA Means for Parents and Families:

Can I have access to my student's grades?

Grades are part of the student's educational record that is protected under FERPA. Great Falls College MSU cannot provide a parent or family member access to a student's grades without the student's written permission.

The Office of the Registrar manages student grade records and the requirements to disclose those grades.

Where can I see the content of the law?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act can be found on the United States Department of Education's website.
