Electing FERPA Directory Hold

The university may release certain directory information to the public on a routine basis unless a student requests, in writing, that the university not release it. Requests for non-disclosure remain in effect until a subsequent written request to release directory information is received.

Students who request non-disclosure of directory information:
 
  • Will not have name printed in the published university chancellor's and dean's lists or commencement program.
  • Will not have attendance and/or degree verified for employers, insurance companies, etc.

A student's directory information will not be shared or made public while this hold is on the student's account, except to school officials or as otherwise allowed by FERPA. The student can continue to use assistance from the university by phone, online, mail, or email if the student verifies their identity by correctly answering vetting questions while a directory hold is on the student's account.
