UConn Student Privacy Rights

The Office of Early College Programs is limited as to the student information we may release to parents of our students. UConn ECE students are included in the University's Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) policy.We are bound by federal laws (FERPA) which mandate certain privacy rights for students. Under these privacy laws, we may not release a student's account balance, billing statements, enrollment information, grades, or refund status without documented consent from the student regardless of age of the student. The University has developed an online waiver to permit students to designate one or more people by assigning each of them a 4-digit access code. For more information on FERPA at the University of Connecticut, please click  FERPA: Frequently Asked Questions.

Your student must complete this waiver in the Student Administration System in order for us to be able to speak with parents directly about any student information.

Billing & Payment

UConn Early College Experience bills are sent directly to the student via email. The office will use the email address provided during the Compass application process. Bills are sent after the student's course enrollment is complete, beginning in July.

All students are billed by e-mail notification only; paper bills are not sent. Failure to receive an e-mail bill notification does not absolve the student of the responsibility of payment by the due date. Students have 24/7 access to view any term fee bill through accessing their student account in the Student Administration System. Bills for fall and full-year courses will be due in November. Bills for spring courses will be due in January. Students may add parents or guardians as Authorized Users to help them monitor the payment process.
