As the parent of a college student, even one who is a minor, your role will be different than it has been. Per the U.S. Department of Education, "if a student is attending a postsecondary institution – at any age – the rights under FERPA have transferred to the student. Access to a student's Sinclair records by parents or guardians is only permitted when a written release of information is signed by the student. Students still maintain rights under FERPA at the high school and may inspect and review records send by the postsecondary institution to the high school."
