FERPA – Red Raider Family Network

Information for Parents & Families

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) is a federal law that pertains to the release of and access to education records. FERPA helps to define a student's rights regarding their education records and how the institution should protect those records.

Texas Tech students can authorize access to their educational records through the Red Raider Family Network. This platform offers an electronic FERPA authorization, streamlining the process for requesting access to a student's academic and financial information. Parents and family members can easily submit a request, and the student will decide which records to share. Additionally, the Red Raider Family Network serves as a valuable connection for parents and family members to stay informed about important Texas Tech news and events.

The Red Raider Family Network enables you to connect with your student by sending a request to access their records. Once the request is approved, you will gain access to view their information starting the day after approval. It's important to note that the data is updated nightly, ensuring you have the most recent information available.
