Appalachian State University endorses and seeks to comply with all provisions of the "Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974" (FERPA) and all pertinent regulations. FERPA provides eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. A student is covered under FERPA when they reach age 18 OR begin attending a postsecondary institution regardless of age or type of student.


Scholarship Fraud:

The College Scholarship Fraud Prevention Act of 2000 was passed to protect students against fraud by creating criminal guidelines for financial aid fraud. Never give out your social security number or bank information for a scholarship. Legitimate sponsors should provide contact information upon request. There is no need for any student to pay for college preparation or financial aid advice. High school counselors, college financial aid administrators, and the Federal Student Aid Information Center all provide help for free. If you believe you've been the victim of scholarship fraud, wish to file a complaint, or want more information, call 1 (877) FTC-HELP or visit the Federal Trade Commission website.
