Employment Verification and FERPA

Students may waive, in writing, the release of their records (specific records or all records) by signing a Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Release, available through the Office of General Counsel.

In order for a university supervisor to release a student's employment records (e.g., letter of recommendation, employment verification, or personal reference), the supervisor must obtain a FERPA Release, signed by the student, before providing the information. The Student Employment staff complete all written employment verifications. If a department receives a written request for verification of employment, please fax 513-529-4223 or mail (Roudebush Hall, room 15) the document for Student Employment to complete.
