  17. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
    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 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.
  18. Pay Your Bill
    All invoices are sent electronically to your student SHU e-mail address and the email addresses of any Authorized Signers and can be viewed at The first electronic invoice will be available on July 7 and the balance, after financial aid and scholarships, is due August 2. We encourage you to ensure the bill is paid timely so you can move in, if applicable, and participate in the opening ceremonies and events.

    If you would like to allow someone, like your parents, to receive your billing notices and/or pay your bill, you must add an "authorized user." An authorized user is any individual granted access by the student to receive billing notifications. For more information about authorized users, please visit the Bursar website or send an email to [email protected].

    If you have questions about Financial Aid, payment options or your bill, please contact the Student Financial Services Help Desk at 1-800-222-7183.
