has created an online capability that enables
you to make elections regarding who has access
to your academic and financial information.
In many cases, it is up to you to decide whether
parents, employers, or others can receive academic
information such as grades, or financial information
such as balance due and payment information.
In certain situations, the Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”)
may permit the University, and sometimes obligates
it, to disclose information without your consent.
You may use the online application to authorize
disclosure of your academic and/or financial
information by the University. Visit the Penn
Portal at http://www.upenn.edu/pennportal/ and
click under My Privacy Settings.
