VII. Parent/Guardians

Generally, when a student reaches the age of 18, is no longer a “dependent” of the parent(s) or guardian(s) for federal income tax purposes, and attends a postsecondary institution, regardless of age, FERPA rights belong to the student. Prior written consent from the student is required before a CCSNH college can disclose information from a student’s education record to a parent or guardian outside of the exceptions noted in Section VI above.
