Academic & Social Support
How can I get information about my son/daughter's academic performance?
Our hope is that students maintain open communication with their parents and/or family members regarding their academic progress and other important issues. We encourage you to discuss these matters with your student, which also fosters trust and mutual responsibility. Furthermore, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). If your son or daughter is 18 years of age or older, Rensselaer cannot release any records, including academic information, to a third party-which includes parents or guardians. For more information regarding FERPA, please contact the Registrars office.
