Please Note: This function is currently down for maintenance while we implement improvements and relaunch at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions—or if you are a parent/guardian inquiring about your student's academic informationplease contact the Support Hub by submitting a ticket or emailing

If you are a student and need a copy of one of our FERPA release forms, please find them attached below. 

(Looking for instructions on granting access to your financial information? Please visit our Knowledge Base article on adding authorized users via the Student Account Center.)

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and subject to certain exceptions, the University may not release information pertaining to your education record to another individual unless authorized by you.

Granting access is done through your Lesley Self-Service account under the "User Options" menu on the left sidebar. Through the portal, your parent/guardian will have access to the same access you have. Your other records, or information from those records, may be shared with your designated parent/guardian through conversation with a Lesley University representative and/or separate copies.

Your education records include many items such as grades, course performance, schedules, financial aid, tuition and fees, misconduct/disciplinary investigations, residence life information, and disability accommodations.

Through the portal, your parent/guardian will have access to the following information should you choose to grant it:

  • Option A- Academic Information
    • Student Transcript
    • Student Schedule
    • Student Grades

If you take no action, access will not be granted.  If you wish to revoke access granted to a parent/guardian or another 3rd party, you may select the following option:

  • Option R - No Access

You determine and control the level of access that your parent/guardian has to your account information.  You may change the access level at any time.
