At the postsecondary level, parents have no inherent rights to inspect a student’s education records.  The right to inspect is limited solely to the student.

Records may be released to parents only under the following circumstances:  (1) through the written consent of the student, (2) in compliance with a subpoena, or (3) by submission of evidence that the parents declare the student as a dependent on their most recent Federal Income Tax form.  An institution is not required to disclose information from the student’s education records to the parents of a dependent student.  It may, however, exercise its discretion to do so.
