FERPA Form for Health Field Placement

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a Federal law designed to protect the privacy of student education records. Due to the FERPA laws, WGU may not give out your personal information without your written consent. Before we can begin working on your placement, which may require us to give out information to a site, we need you to fill out a FERPA information release form.


  1. Go to this link, login and electronically complete the Health Placement FERPA form (opens new window).
  2. Be sure to read WGU's FERPA policy (opens new window).

Note: Students cannot begin their placement without their signature on this form.
