Your student will need to contact the Registrar's office.
College students' records are protected by the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA). It restricts institutions from releasing grades and other educational records without the student's written permission. Students may view their grades online through the student ACCESS system after grades have been submitted and recorded by the registrar's office. The only way for parents to see their child's grades is if the student makes a written request for a transcript to be sent home from the registrar's office. Colorado College does not mail grade reports home.
