You may easily view your student’s financial aid, billing, payment, 1098-T form, grades, course schedule, and transcript information via the Parent Portal, after you are granted permission by your student. Your student may grant any person access by completing the “I grant permission to…” section of the Personal Information form submitted online at time of registration. A separate entry for each person granted access must be submitted.
Your student must grant you permission via MyCIA for access before you may see the information.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) helps protect the rights of your student's records. It allows the Institute to release information from your student's educational record without your student's written consent:
The Institute will not release your student's educational records to other third parties unless your student grants specific permission by completing the "I grant permission to..." section of the Personal Information form submitted online at time of registration.
Your student must complete that permissions section. The permission to other parties will remain in effect throughout your student's enrollment at the Institute. Your student may amend these permissions at any time by contacting the Registrar's Office.
FERPA defines an education record as any record directly related to a student which contains personally identifiable information and is maintained the university or a party acting on behalf of the university. Education information that an institution defines as "directory" information is not included under FERPA and may be released without the student's written consent. The Institute defines directory information as: name, address, phone, email, date of birth, dates of attendance, major, class, participation in activities, and degrees, honors and awards earned.
