Information for Parents

Access to Student Records

While parents understandably have an interest in a student's academic progress, they cannot be granted access to a student's records without the written consent of the student. Parents are encouraged to consult with the student if academic information is needed. Please see the Student Privacy Rights page for a thorough explanation of the Federal law pertaining to the access of student records.

The Student Information Release Authorization e-form is available for students (requires student login) to give permission for a third party to access specific information within their educational records. The form allows a student to choose information from either the Business office or the office of Records and Registration to be released to a specified designee(s). The form does not allow general access to the student's online MyBlugold account information.  We strongly encourage students to forward their bills and grade reports (sent via email to the student) to their parents/guardians as needed.

Grades, Schedules, and Transcripts

Grades and schedules are automatically mailed electronically each term to the student's UW-Eau Claire email account. Students may choose to forward this information on to their parents. Transcripts, as well as degree audits, require the student's written signature to be released from the Registrar's Office. Students may choose to have a transcript mailed to their parent's address. We encourage parents to consult with the student if academic information is needed.

Billing Statements

The Business Office oversees the billing of tuition and fees. Bills for tuition and fees are periodically mailed to a student's email account. Parents should contact the Business office at 715-836-5285 for information on payment deadlines.  

Verification of Enrollment for Insurance Purposes

Frequently parents are required to provide information to an insurance company as proof of enrollment or academic status.

Students can obtain enrollment verification at no charge, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through National Student Clearinghouse. Students can go to MyBlugold CampS, select Student Center and then My Academics.  On the My Academics page select the link for an Enrollment Verification and follow the instructions from there.  This service is provided free of charge to UWEC students through the National Student Clearinghouse. We are unable to verify future dates of enrollment. 

If for some reason the form provided via MyBlugold is not adequate for the verfication you need, please contact the Records and Registration Office at 715-836-5866 to obtain this information or send an email to verifications@uwec.edu. Often, the insurance company requires a form to be completed and then forwarded. These forms should be mailed to the Verifications office:

UW-Eau Claire Registrar's Office
Attn: Verifications
105 Garfield Ave.
Eau Claire, WI 54701

Special Circumstances and Emergencies

When special circumstances or emergencies require reaching a student, contact the Dean of Students Office at 715-836-5626.
