The BYU-Idaho Student Financial Aid Office adheres to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. For frequently asked questions about this privacy act, please click here.

Our privacy policy is as follows:

  • The Student Financial Aid Office can only discuss a student’s personal financial aid information with the student by phone, in person, or through his/her BYU-Idaho student email.
  • All other persons inquiring about a student’s account will be given general information only. If a student has extenuating circumstances and needs another person to discuss his/her financial aid, the student must submit a completed privacy release form.

(Please note: Students are not obligated to fill out a privacy release form with our office. If the student does not wish to grant access to others, he/she may disregard this information.)
