The university assures the confidentiality of student educational records in accordance with State University System rules, state statutes and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, known as the Buckley Amendment. Directory information is that information which can be released to the public on any student. It is limited to name, class, college and major; dates of attendance; degree(s) earned; honors and awards received; local, permanent and e-mail addresses; telephone number; most recent previous educational institution attended; participation in officially recognized activities and sports; and the weight and height of members of athletics teams.
Currently enrolled students who wish to withhold information in these categories should complete a Restriction of Directory Information form, available from the Office of the University Registrar.
In general, present or former students have the right to review their own educational records for information and to determine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equivalent documentation or personal recognition by the custodian of record will be required before access is granted. Parents of dependent students, as defined by the Internal Revenue Service, have these same rights upon presentation of proof of the student's dependent status.
