Many students receive requests for their parents and other relatives to have access to their Student Data while they are enrolled.  These include access to paying a bill or reviewing grades or reviewing financial aid packages. The FERPA regulations require that a student expressly waive their rights under those laws in order to grant that protected information.  The student can allow all access, limited access or rescind those permissions at any time.
