FERPA Brochure (.pdf)

The College routinely publishes material classified as directory information that is permissible within FERPA. Such materials include the student directory, news stories on recipients of honors, a listing of participants in student activities, membership in campus organizations and the like. Directory information may include majors, minors, dates of attendance, date of birth, email address, enrollment status (full-time or part-time), address, and date of graduation. Individuals, however, may request their name not appear in directory information by notifying the Registrar’s Office in writing.
