Connect with Penn Parents

The Office of Parent Outreach and Development/Penn Parents is the central resource for connecting undergraduate parents and families to the University. Their office is a terrific first stop to orient you to Penn and help you answer questions you have about your child’s experience.

FERPA and Student Privacy

Want to access your student’s grades? Review or pay your student’s bill? Talk to SRFS about grades, financial aid, or a bill?  

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects your student’s privacy and governs disclosure of your student’s academic and financial information. Make sure your child reviews the SRFS Must-Do List to give us permission to share academic and financial information with you.

For more information about FERPA and other privacy options, visit Penn Privacy.
