Submission Types Agreeing to Waive FERPA What is the FERPA Waiver? Since FERPA is a complex law, we want to provide some key information before you respond to the FERPA waiver question. 1. How does FERPA relate to your college application? FERPA gives you the right to review confidential letters of recommendation under certain circumstances IF: You are enrolled in college and that college saves the recommendations for enrolled students, OR You are 18 or older. 2. In the application you'll be asked if you want to waive this right. Why would you want to do that? Waiving your right lets colleges know that you do not intend to read your recommendations, which helps reassure colleges that the letters are candid and truthful. Some recommenders may refuse to write a letter for you unless you waive your rights. Check with your counselor or teachers to see if any of them follow such a

policy. College Admission Tests CEEB Code: 111734 Harrison ***2 out of 3 students SAT scores improve when they take it more than once!
