The Federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibit discussion of a student’s academic performance with anyone other than the student. Dual credit UofL instructors follow these FERPA mandates. Please note that parents will not be notified if a participating student is doing poorly in class. A parent may discuss grades with their son or daughter, but not the instructor. Any grade received in a dual credit class will become a part of the student’s high school and college permanent record.
