FERPA/Parent Notification Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records.

FERPA stands for "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974" also known as "The Buckley Amendment." FERPA is the United States federal law that protects student records privacy review and disclosure rights. FERPA places certain restrictions on the kinds of information about students that can be shared without explicit permission from the student.

For more information on FERPA at Robert Morris University, visit here.



The Dean of Students office will contact the parent/guardian when deemed appropriate. Documentation of the parental/guardian notification will be included in the student's educational record. The Dean of Students office may use discretion regarding parental/guardian notification in those incidents where it is determined that extenuating circumstances exist.

In most cases of student conduct violations by students who are eighteen (18) years of age, parents/guardians are notified following resolution of the alleged violation. Should a student be less than eighteen (18) years of age, parents/guardians are notified by the appropriate party as soon as possible.
