FERPA and Parent/Guest Portal

Print/Download Page

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects students’ education records and grants students the exclusive right to view and share their education records. Education records include, but are not limited to, transcripts, grades, class schedules, financial aid documents, billing statements and emergency contact information.

In VIP, students may register parents and/or other trusted individuals for the Parent/Guest Portal. The portal is Cal U’s secure, online option for authorized parents and individuals to view student education records. Students may add and remove Parent/Guest Portal users at any time (and decide which items can be accessed). For more information about FERPA and the Parent/Guest Portal, search "parent/guest portal" on our website. Students, parents and guests with questions about the Parent/Guest Portal may email family@calu.edu.
