Registrar FERPA Information
In accordance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Clayton State University is prohibited from providing certain information from a student’s file to a third party. To allow a third party access to information on your records, you must submit a Permission to Release Education Record Information (FERPA) form. There are three types of access you may choose to provide:
- To allow information from the Bursar’s Office, the Center for Advising and Retention, the Financial Aid Office, or the Registrar’s Office to be shared with a third party, select “Current CSU Student (Limited to Bursar, Center for Advising & Retention, Financial Aid, & Registrar).” This form requires the creation of a PIN that only the individual(s) specified may use to request information from your student file. Please note that this authorization only applies to records pertaining to the four offices specified. This authorization will remain valid as long as you are continuously enrolled or until you revoke the permission.
- To allow information from any other office or department within the university to be shared with a third party, select “One Time—faculty or other offices not listed in item 1.” This form is a one-time release that is valid only for the date on which the form is submitted and allows access only to the specified recipient.
- To allow information from College AIM or Achieve Atlanta to be shared with a third party, select “College AIM or Achieve Atlanta.” This authorization will remain valid as long as you are continuously enrolled or until you revoke the permission.
