  1. Sign in to your Self-Service Center account online.
  2. Click on Student Main Menu.
  3. Click on FERPA Information.
  4. Click on Update FERPA Contacts.
  5. Add new contact or edit existing contact accessibility.
  6. Accept the FERPA Waiver terms.
  7. Enter in all pertinent information on the person being given permission, including the address and phone number.
  8. Select what you want the person to permission to access.
  9. Click Submit to submit the waiver.
