Parent Expectations & Student Privacy
Parents have an important role in the education of their Ithaca College student. We encourage open communication between students and parents concerning all aspects of a student's academic program, their grades, general academic progress and life at IC. We believe that the student is ultimately responsible for their success. You can help by promoting and encouraging their self-reliance, and by always going through them to find answers to your questions.
We do not print or mail grades, or discuss student information via phone. Student education records are protected by FERPA. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a US Federal law that applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the US Department of Education. This law is also referred to as the Buckley Amendment. In compliance with the law, this office only releases directory information.
