Authorization to Release Information
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) exists to protect your right to confidentiality and limits our ability to release information about your financial aid. In compliance with the Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, CSU, Chico is prohibited from providing certain information from your student record to a third party, such as grades, billing, tuition and fee assessments, financial aid and other student record information. This restriction applies, but is not limited, to your parents, your spouse, or a sponsor.
Students may grant the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office permission to release information about their financial aid to a third party (including parents, step-parents, spouse, etc.) by submitting an online Authorization to Release Information form. Please note: A new Authorization to Release Information form must be completed and signed each academic year. Please select the correct year.
