FERPA Tutorial Suppressed Directory Information

Students have the right to require that directory information about
them not be disclosed.

To make this request, a student must submit a “Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information Form” to the Office of Records and Registration. Students who request suppression of directory information usually do so because of serious, even dangerous, circumstances. It is critical that their absolute privacy be protected in every situation.

If a student has elected to suppress directory information, the University will respond to inquiries as follows:

“There is no information available for any student by that name.”

To remove a previously submitted request to suppress directory information, a student must submit a “Request to Revoke Previous Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information Form” to the Office of Records and Registration.
