FAQs

"Can I see my student's grades?"

You can access your student’s records (grades, financial aid info, etc.) if they give you permission. You will have to fill out a FERPA form and have your student sign it at the registrar’s office. If you cannot come to the school, you may have your student sign it in front of a notary, and then send in the notarized document to the school.

You can find the FERPA form here.

"What resources are available to help my student pass his/her classes?"

If your student is struggling in a class, the Academic Performance center is available. The Academic Performance Center offers a variety of tutoring services, such as face-to-face and online tutoring sessions, to the entire student body. We want to make sure you receive personalized attention from tutors who have your unique challenges and academic goals in mind. The Academic Performance Center prides itself in their ability to provide targeted, one-on-one instruction at no cost to all Dixie State University students. To learn more, visit their website here.

It is also important to realize some classroom challenges may be non-academic. Dixie State offers a variety of resources to help students both academically and non-academically. For a list of full resources, visit here.

"Does my student need a personal computer?"

Although the university does not require that your student bring a laptop to school, there is no question that it would be a useful tool in completing homework, especially as many housing facilities have wireless internet. Having said that, there are several computer labs on campus available for students’ use.

"Who should my student contact if he/she has a disability?"

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is responsible for evaluating disability documentation, determining eligibility, and implementing reasonable accommodations for students who have disabilities that may affect their participation, success, retention, and graduation. Visit the disability resource center for more into.

"When will my student find out if they have received financial aid?"

The time will vary depending on when your student applied for financial aid. Typically, a student can find out if they will receive financial aid within two weeks of application. For additional information, please refer to the financial aid website.
