Rhody Share: Grant Guest Access to Your eCampus Information

A federal law called the Federal Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA), prevents the University from discussing student information with others, including parents and guardians. This law also applies students under the age of 18.

As a student, you may assign eCampus guest access to view your billing, academic records, and/or financial aid information. Guests are considered the following:

  • Parent
  • Guardian
  • Grandparent
  • Sibling
  • Employer
  • Third party payer


For students and guests without computer access, the University has a paper Consent to Release Student Educational Records form. The authorization remains in effect until you cancel the authorization by written request. It will not grant real-time access to e-Campus.


Directory information is information contained in a student education record that would generally not be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. While institutions may designate and release specified items, students have the right to and may block any or all of this information. Note that students with a FERPA block will generally not appear on publicly released Dean’s Lists or in Commencement Programs.

To manage your FERPA restrictions, log into e-Campus and go to Main Menu -> Self Service -> Campus Personal Information -> FERPA Restrictions.
