As a college student, you are entitled to the privacy of your student records under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). If you choose, you may grant a parent, guardian, or spouse access to view your academic and/or financial information through the my.hesston.edu website. Academic information includes access to your student schedule and grade reports. It also gives your academic advisor permission to speak to whom you grant permission. Financial information includes your financial aid and student financial information (ie. what you owe). This also allows the granted person permission to make payments electronically on your account.
