Your Student’s Financial Aid Information

We send most of our correspondence regarding students’ financial aid directly to students via email. If you want to stay informed and help your student manage his or her financial aid, there are a couple of things you should know:

Requesting Information About Your Student

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Livingstone College policy, the Office of Financial Aid is prohibited from releasing financial aid information to anyone other than registered students. We can discuss financial information with dependent students’ parents or custodial parents, if the parents have completed the authorization form.
