Before you contact us, a note about privacy:

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act — FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, is a Federal law which protects the privacy of student education records. Once a student either turns 18 years of age or attends a school beyond the high school level, all education privacy rights transfer to the student. University of Maine employees can speak with a parent or guardian about the student’s personal information up until August 15, 2012. After this date, a signed Student Consent to Release Information Form (PDF) is required in order to speak to anyone other than the student about the student’s personal information. Personal information includes: academic information such as the student’s schedule, instructors, grades, GPA, suspension, requests for official or unofficial transcripts, etc.; all financial aid information specific to the student; billing information and charges. The form must be signed by the student and must be filled out completely. Once the form is completed, submit it to the Office of Student Records either by mail at 5781 Wingate Hall, Room 100, Orono, Maine 04469-5781 or via fax at (207) 581-3453.  Please note that the FERPA form is different than the HIPAA form which is a consent to release medical information.
