You have the right to restrict the release of your student information or to authorize the release of information to specified individuals.
There are two ways to restrict the release of your personal information:
To remove the confidentiality restriction, complete the bottom section of the Confidentiality Request form to revoke the restriction.
How do I release some of my information for particular purposes?
If you wish to release information about your grades held by the Office of the Registrar to an individual you may complete the FERPA Student Consent to Release Information form. This form automatically expires in one year. If you wish to continue the release beyond one year you must complete a new form. When completing the form you must authorize a specific individual(s) to be able to obtain your records. Turn the form into the Office of the Registrar and be prepared to show picture identification at that time. The authorized individual must submit a signed written request to our office for your records. Upon receipt of the request and verification of the release, an official transcript will be forwarded to the authorized individual.
If you wish to have someone else (e.g. an advisor, a professor, a club advisor) release your student record information to another organization (e.g. a graduate school outside of OSU, an employer, a scholarship committee outside of OSU), you may complete this FERPA recommendation form and hand it over to the person who will be speaking about your performance as a student.

These are your rights and it is to your benefit to familiarize yourself with them. Take the FERPA tutorial to learn more.
