Student Privacy

At UT, student information is handled in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), which is also referred to as the Buckley Amendment. FERPA sets forth guidelines for safeguarding the privacy of student educational records in regards to their access and release.

Students are notified of their FERPA rights and the procedures for limiting disclosure of directory information in the Hilltopics student handbook, at orientation for new students, and in annual emails from the university administration. Visit UT’s FERPA website for more information, which includes a tutorial, forms, and answers to frequently asked questions.

Educational Tax Benefits

Parents and UT students may be eligible for education-related tax benefits. The American Opportunity (Hope Credit extended) and the Lifetime Learning Credit are education credits you can subtract in full from federal income tax, not just deduct from taxable income. Information from the IRS is posted on their website.

UT Employees and Families

The University of Tennessee offers many benefits to its employees and their families who wish to study at UT. Each year, our office teams with the chancellor’s office to host an event called Volunteer Value. We encourage you to attend and find out more about the opportunities available at UT.
