Student Information Release

The Student Information Release page is now available!!

You can now log into your Student Center via buckeyelink.osu.edu to access the Financial Aid Information Release. This release can be given to a parent, guardian, spouse, or other party whom you wish to have access to your student financial aid information. If you are an enrolled student and someone is contacting Ohio State in regards to your student financial aid records, a release must be on file before your information can be discussed. Please note that any adjustments or changes made through your Student Information Release will replace and void all releases previously on file.

To change or update your information releases:

  1. Click on Student Information Release in the Personal Information section of your Student Center, available via buckeyelink.osu.edu.
  2. Fill in the requested Designee Information, including a unique access code of your choice for each designee to use to validate their identity when seeking information about you from the university.
  3. Check the appropriate releases for each designee (you can select more than one release per designee)
  4. Click the Add button to list multiple designees.

Note: Any adjustments or changes made through your Student Center will replace and void all releases previously on file.

Student Financial Aid has made some adjustments to their internal procedures regarding FERPA in preparation for the new Student Information Release page.
