Pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, the University cannot disclose personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records without the student's written consent. A parent does not automatically have the right to view his/her child's records without the express written/electronic consent of the student, unless that parent can provide proof that the student is still a dependent for income tax purposes. View the complete UIC Student Records Policy here.

Students may grant any third party (e.g., spouse, parent and/or sponsor) permission to access their financial aid records by completing the FERPA Release Form online. Please visit the Registrar website to complete an electronic FERPA.
