Students are able to view their Passphrase on their personal information questionnaire. They are also able to deploy a passphrase to parent/guardian/spouse.
Beginning on February 18, 2019, all departments authorized to release education record data will ask callers for their unique passphrase. Even if your student has already granted you the FERPA release(s), you will need a passphrase to talk with university offices over the phone.
Parents and Family: Make sure your student has given you a unique code-word via email so that the Dean of Students office can verify it's you over the phone and get information to you quickly. Even if your student has already granted you the FERPA release, you will need a code-word to talk with the university offices over the phone.
