Parental Communication

Aurora University is committed to informing and educating its students, faculty and staff in the prevention of identity theft. To promote this program and in accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which requires that colleges and universities protect the privacy of student records and student identity, it is Aurora University's policy to NOT release certain information to anyone other than the student unless the student has given us express written permission to do so. This limitation includes PARENTS and SPOUSES.

To submit a completed FERPA authorization form, the student must log on to their account on WebAdvisor and click on "FERPA Release Information."  This form allows students to provide other named individuals with access to the following information:

  • Academic Information (registration, academic progress, enrollment status, attendance, academic probation)
  • Center for Teaching and Learning (tutoring received)
  • Class Schedule or Grades/GPA
  • Financial Aid (awards, application data, disbursements, eligibility, financial aid academic progress status)
  • Residence Life (housing information)
  • Student Accounts (billing information, charges, credits, payments etc.)
  • Student Insurance (enrollment status, claim status)

Currently this form does not include Judicial Affairs/student conduct information, which requires a separate release of information, available from the Office of Residence Life.
