    You and your parents should be aware that for students 18 years or older there are federal regulations that limit the ability of parents to access information about their child’s records once he/she enrolls at Seton Hall. These regulations are called FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). This law means that parents do not have the right to view their child’s grades, transcripts, bill or financial aid, or any other educational records without the student's consent. Parents also do not have the right to call and inquire about their child’s status or activities without this written consent. We encourage you to discuss this with your parents in advance to determine if you will complete the on-line consent form. If you wish to grant such consent to your parents, you will find the on-line FERPA Authorization Form in PirateNet under the Academics tab in the FERPA section.
