New Wake Forest students received the following email from the Registrar’s office about proxy access for FERPA (Family Educational Right to Privacy Act).
Dear New Student,
Starting today, a new online service, Proxy Access is available to you in WIN. This service replaces the paper “FERPA form” that granted access to your academic information. If you have completed a FERPA form and submitted it to the Office of the University Registrar in the past, you must now complete your “proxy access” selections online. The paper FERPA form is no longer used.
In Proxy Access, you can grant each proxy that you select online access to view any combination of the following pieces of your information:
The most common scenario is for you to grant a parent or parents access, but you are not limited in the number of individuals you grant access. It is important for you to understand that by granting proxy access you are giving Wake Forest permission to share the information you have selected with that individual. This permission is necessary to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (http://registrar.wfu.edu/services/privacy/).
You can set-up your Proxy Access now by going to WIN>Virtual Campus>Proxy Services and selecting Proxy Management. If you have any questions, detailed information, instructions, and FAQ’s are available at http://registrar.wfu.edu/proxyaccess/
I hope you are enjoying your first days at Wake Forest and your Orientation.
Best wishes for a wonderful first semester.

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem. Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select information and presentations from Orientation 2016 are available online.
