How can a student withhold public information?

        Directory information may be released to anyone unless the student submits a request to prevent the disclosure of directory information in the Admissions and Records office.   Students must complete the form to request that the Admissions and Records Office keep all directory information restricted from release. 

        Directory information in a restricted record may not be released without written permission from the student.  Therefore, faculty and staff need to be careful about assuming that because an item is directory information it can be freely disclosed. 

        If a student has requested to withhold directory information, the following statement will appear on each data screen:  "FERPA Alert:  this student has requested to withhold Directory Info."  The student must give written consent in the Admissions and Records Office each time information is to be released.  Please contact Admissions and Records for further information.
