FERPA

Campus FERPA Policy

FERPA is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of students once they enter college regardless of their age. It applies to educational institutions that receive funds under applicable programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The Bursar’s Office is not allowed to discuss information about the student’s tuition and fee account with anyone other than the student unless we have specific permission from the student. Visit the Office of the Registrar for more information about FERPA.

Authorized Payers

Students can give access to student account information only* by designating parents or others (up to five people) as Authorized Payers. This includes access to CUBill&Pay to view the tuition and fee bill online (no paper bills are mailed), pay online, enroll in payment plans, and discuss tuition and fees over the phone and through email (at their designated email address in CUBill&Pay).  If parents or family members are helping to pay tuition and fees, we strongly encourage students to authorize them as payers. CU Guest Access and FERPA Consent to Release do not provide access to tuition and fee account information.

For more information about privacy settings and other kinds of access to student records, visit the Office of the Registrar.

*This does not include financial aid details and 1098T tax forms.  Parents cannot access the 1098T tax form directly. Students must download the form in MyCUInfo and provide it to their parents.
