Complete Each Semester - New and Returning Students

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records. This release form allows you to provide access to your financial records for the purpose of assisting you with the financing of your education, your academic information and/or your housing information.  You can change who has access to this information at any time. This form is electronic and will require logging in to the student portal to complete.

Beacon College must get your correct identifying number to file Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, with the IRS and to furnish a statement to you. This will be your Social Security Number (SSN) or, if you are not eligible to obtain an SSN, your individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Form 1098-T contains information about qualified tuition and related expenses to help determine whether you, or the person who can claim you as a dependent, may take either the tuition and fees deduction or claim an education credit to reduce federal income tax. For more information, see IRS Pub. 970, Tax Benefits for Higher Education.

The student financial agreement is required each semester. It ensures you understand your commitments and expectations as a Beacon College student.

In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, Beacon College has a procedure to investigate when a student is reported missing. Each student has the option to designate a confidential contact by submitting this form to Housing & Residential Life. This person will be contacted within 24 hours of the time that a student is considered missing. Law enforcement officials (including Campus Safety) also will be notified of a student’s absence no later than 24 hours after the student has been deemed missing, and will follow their own investigation procedures. However, keeping your confidential contact up-to-date about your whereabouts will help the investigation considerably.

The Student Health Insurance “Wellfleet”  Opt-Out waiver is available after July 8. When completing the waiver, you must complete the form until you receive a confirmation code to waive the student health insurance plan.
