Web-4-Parent Authorization

Frequently Asked Questions: for Students for Parents

Guest Access to Student Education Records

Effective Fall 2010, EKU is implementing a new initiative "Web-4-Parent". A student can give written permission authorizing an individual(s) to have a guest EKU Direct access only account to view the student's academic and financial information. This access is "view only" and does not enable the guest to make any changes to the student's information.

The student granting permission must complete the Web-4-Parent Authorization form and return it to the EKU Registrar's Office (Whitlock 239), either in person with a photo ID or via an e-mail attachment from their EKU e-mail account. The form must be signed by the student; not the parent. The authorization form may be picked up from the Registrar's Office. To be compliant with federal privacy regulation, we are not able to accept a completed authorization form if it is mailed, returned by anyone other than the student, or is not signed by the student.

In accordance with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), only the student can approve guest access. This access can be revoked by the student at any time. While the Registrar's Office is happy to answer questions regarding Web-4-Parent, in keeping with federal privacy law, we cannot discuss any academic information over the phone.

For questions, please refer to the FAQ's or call the Registrar's Office at 622-2320.
