FERPA Waiver

All applicants complete the FERPA waiver from within their Common App accounts by clicking the Assign Recommenders tab for any college within My Colleges. The FERPA waiver is only completed once and covers all current and future colleges and recommenders. Once a student invites the counselor or recommender, the FERPA selection locks and cannot be changed.

For students at Naviance schools: the FERPA section locks as soon as the applicants match their Common App and Naviance accounts. For all other students: After the FERPA selection is made, applicants can invite recommenders. Once a student invites a recommender, the FERPA selection locks and cannot be changed.

Please keep in mind that you can only see the 'Assign Recommenders' tab once you add at least one school to your account.
