According the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Study Away Office (SAO) may only share directory information without your consent. During your participation in a Study Away program, the SAO may need to provide other information about your education record (including class schedule, attendance, travel arrangements) to a parent, guardian or other third parties.
We recommend that you allow the SAO to share information with parents, guardian, spouses or those financially responsible for the Study Away program. Information about another student will not be provided without that student’s consent.
