Privacy Policy

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, Vanguard University has established guidelines regarding access to and release of educational records. In short, FERPA allows Vanguard to release “directory information” without consent or knowledge of the students unless the student has notified Vanguard in advance that such information is not to be released. Directory information may include the following: photo, name, address, telephone listing, e-mail address, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended.

Information about the student, such as class schedules, grades, financial aid, student account balance, etc. is not available to parents unless the student has signed a Secondary Party Access Form (written release). Secondary Party Access Forms can be found here.

All students are provided with a Vanguard University email address which is the primary method of communication. Students are responsible for checking this email regularly to stay updated on important information and deadlines.
*Secondary access forms must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Questions regarding the Secondary Access form, please contact the Registrar's office at (714)662-5201 or email records@vanguard.edu.
