Students, especially those involved in LaGrange College Athletics and Greek organizations, may be asked to collect current grades from their professors. FERPA requires that, except in certain special circumstances, providing a student’s academic records to someone other than the student requires the student’s written permission.

For LaGrange College to release a student’s grades to a student organization there must be a written record that the student has requested this and the authorization to release this information must be signed by the student. The faculty has adopted the use of the Student Organization Grade Disclosure Agreement, which members of student organizations must sign giving permission for their organization to collect grade reports.

In addition, students must recognize that written/signed grade reports are provided as a courtesy by members of the LaGrange College faculty.
