Welcome Parents and Families!
Pfeiffer University understands the important role parents and families play in the college experience. While our primary relationship and communication will always be with your student, we want you to feel part of our community as well. We encourage parents and families to be active in their student's college experience and at the same time allow them to grow and develop into self-advocates. It is our hope that the information on this page will help you manage this time of change and challenge, and also help you support your student here at Pfeiffer.
While we understand that many parents and families will want to know details concerning their student’s academic and social progress, as a University we cannot readily share that information. It is vital that parents and families understand The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). FERPA prohibits University employees, including Advisors, Professors, Deans or other staff members, from providing information from the student’s record (academic or otherwise) to anyone other than the student without the student’s written consent. For more details on FERPA please see the handout on this page.
